How to Get a Rape Kit

Perhaps you’ve already listened to the Unladylike podcast featuring Trisha Sheridan’s interview on the episode, How to Get a Rape Kit. If not, you should. Overall, I found it to be pretty delightful to listen to, not just because of Trisha’s centering of the health and well-being of patients over the kit itself, but also because of the excellent interview questions and points made by Cristen and Caroline, the hosts of Unladylike. While there were a few (minor) things I didn’t necessarily agree with, it was just so damn refreshing to hear this healthcare focused explanation of the work we do, I was cheering in my office. The dog was frankly concerned.
