Vinnie’s Inspiration: A friend revealed to me her having been kidnapped and raped by a group of strange men when she was in high school. The recurring trauma of her experience compounded by the fact that her family didn’t know how to deal with the crime and the fact that the perps were never arrested or brought to justice shook me to my core. Furious at a society that refuses to develop the tools to deal with such horrific and wide-spread behavior I took it upon myself to attempt to change the environment that allows a college educated male like myself to be willfully ignorant of a woman’s well being and safety. Vinnie’s Famous! Vinnie’s Tampon Case has been featured in nearly every woman’s magazine, on countless radio programs, in newspapers across the globe, on TV shows, in documentaries, in books, at the Andy Warhol Museum, offered in stores around the world, given away by Justin Timberlake at his 22nd birthday party, discussed in Harvard classrooms, and, most importantly, discussed by boys and girls on playgrounds.
