According to a story published in the Norman Transcript, the protest is in response to the perceived failure of the school administration to provide adequate protection from bullying of the alleged victims. The article goes on to identify student Danielle Brown, her mother, Kim Wright, and her aunt, Stacey Wright as spokespersons for the group.

School principal Scott Beck responded to the charges in a letter released to parents on . In the letter, Beck said the school took the strongest disciplinary action against against the alleged assailant permitted by Oklahoma law. The school is coöperating with local law enforcement in investigating the alleged crimes.

#YesAllDaughters spokesperson Stacy Wright is quoted in the Transcript article as claiming that 1 of the alleged victims was harrassed upon her attempt to return to school after being raped. She was verbally attacked when she walked into school. It was a group of girls who threatened her. She had just made it to the doors on her first day back, said Wright.

Norman Police Department Captain Tom Easley declined comment due to the ages of the accused rapist, the alleged harrassers, and the alleged victims.

M-mount lenses do not provide aperture information to the camera body, either electronically or mechanically. Therefore, f-stop settings are approximate, and are probably wildly inaccurate. For what it’s worth, I usually shoot with my lenses wide open.
