#MeToo campaign led many celebrities and common people to open up about sexual abuses they have faced. The harrowing experience which leaves an ever lasting imprint on the person's mind started becoming the subject of discussions and our news feed. From workplace and friends to perpetrators within our houses, people especially girls started talking about sexual assault and their struggle.

Recently, a young spoken word artiste took to mic to share her gut wrenching story. She narrated a letter to her father in the form of a poignant poetry at an open mic for Tape A Tale. Afreen Khan tells her father (who divorced her mother) about that monstrous night when her mother was away and her step father assaulted her sexually. Afreen, who was then just 11-year-old managed to escape but is still traumatised. The video since then has garnered more than 4 lakh views and 19k likes. ''When this story was told live there was pin drop silence in the hall, as soon as the story got over, everyone stood up and applauded because this story deserves that respect. It takes unimaginable amount of courage to tell such a story, Afreen Khan talks about that one dreadful night that changed her life forever and it WILL change something in you too,'' says the caption.
