This Sexual Assault Awareness Month, let’s make one thing clear: WE NEED MORE.
More resources for survivors.
Better reporting, engagement and action.
We need protection.
We need CHANGE.
WTF is that? Mic does a great job breaking it down.
In their words, “It’s time for Sexual Assault Anger Month, during which survivors are free to express the full depths of our rage while allies and supporters protect us from backlash…Even better would be Sexual Assault Action Month, which would require — and inspire — participants to take meaningful action toward measurably reducing sexual violence. The last week would be reserved for evaluation of impact and lessons learned.”
