Shape Magazine interview

23 Oct, 2014

Galpin talks to Shape Magazine about creating the Mountain2Mountain organization.

My sister had been raped on her college campus and I had also been raped when I was 18 and nearly killed. We were 10 years apart and attacked at relatively the same age 18 and 20, in two different states, Minnesota and Colorado and that made me realize that the world needed to change, and I needed to be part of that. I knew that I had a unique insight into gender violence; and also being a mother, I wanted the world to be a safer, better place for women.
