When Emily Lindin was in middle school, her classmates labeled her a slut and bullied her to the point where she considered suicide. As an adult, Lindin wanted to help others in the same situation.

First, she put her middle school diaries online in “The Unslut Project” and then published the book “Unslut: A Diary and a Memoir.” Today we revisit host Robin Young’s conversation with Lindin.

Hear our original conversation with Emily Lindin and read an excerpt from her book.

The UnSlut Project can also be found on Tumblr and Facebook.
