“Having come out and told some stories publicly about the sexual harassment in the forest service, I came to this place where I really had to own my opinion about that and I had to own my voice. I feel like I really had to decide what I believed. And I think once you go through that process, you stop caring so much about how people could judge you.” – Tara Baker

“As a woman, you are seen as the problem-maker in romantic or sexual encounters. Guys are always patted on the back and given a high five like ‘oh sweet, you got her into bed’ and girls are slut-shamed.” – Tara Baker
