Singer Karen ‘Kaz’ Lucas who became famous shortly after TPF has opened up about being sexually abused by someone she had known for over 10 years.
In a long detailed post shared on her Instagram page, the lass went on to narrate saying that the incident took place just recently however it still feels quite fresh in her mind.
Without revealing the name of the person that assaulted her, singer Kaz opened up saying;
Ooooh. Long post*
I recently acquired this obsession with swim suits as a way of reclaiming my sexuality. Because I don’t want to go into the details of it, I’ll just share this little bit;
I was recently sexually abused by someone that had been my friend of over 10 years. The incident involved a pool and 2 pairs of my swim suits. My swim suits got lost in the war. BUT over the past few months, I’ve been going over and over it in my head of how I can RECLAIM my swimsuits ✊🏽. For the most part I wanted to go back to the scene of the crime, face my perpetrator and let them know how I felt and then get back my swim suits. I deliberated this thought the longest with phrases like ‘but they’re my property and I deserve to have them back’.
Obsession with swim suits
According to Kaz, she eventually decided to let go of the anger she had been building up inside and instead chose to buy several new swim suits just to show herself that she was still in charge of her own life. She went on to add;
Eventually, I made the decision to drop the whole thing. It was literally causing me so much grief!! I dropped everything, including the memory that anything happened to me. I then went on @zaful_swimwear (not an ad) and bought myself 4 swimsuits as a power move. Ps, they have bomb ass swim suits and they are super well priced!!
After this experience, Kaz Karen Lucas has now decided to reach and help out both men and women who have been through the same situation as hers.
But just to note that you really HONESTLY never know what someone is going through at any given time. Stories of sexual harassment and people’s survival stories have surrounded me recently and now even more so with our new project @dearlaw_ke. If you know anyone that is keen on sharing their story, details will be shared later today on the @dearlaw_ke page.
Lastly, Miss Kaz concluded by saying;
Dear Law is a women-led multi-media project premised on using storytelling, feminist, survivor-centred and human rights-based approaches, inspired by social movements such as #MeToo that have prompted critical conversations and social pressure towards accountability for sexual harassment.
The goal of the Dear Law project is to bring to the fore and amplify the voices and collective sexual harassment experiences of women in the legal profession with a view to disrupt the normalisation of sexual harassment in the legal profession. This will be done through Dear Law letters, the Dear Law podcast and digital art which will be accessible online, in exhibitions and eventually an anthology.
