Dakota Johnson has launched a podcast called The Left Ear for victims of sexual assault and shes inspiring us all.

It all started when the 29-year-old shared her phone number at the Global Citizen Festival last year as she encouraged women and girls to call her to share their experiences with her.

Now shes taken her commitment to the next level and launched The Left Ear as a platform for the stories to be heard.

Opening up about it on Instagram, she wrote: One year ago I asked women and girls around the world to call me and leave a voicemail telling their stories of sexual violence, harassment, and gender based inequalities.

I didnt want to speak on their behalf, I wanted to listen to them.

This is The Left Ear. A podcast where you will find the voicemails I listened to.
