Giving Voice To Survivors of Sexual Violence
Sexual violence feeds on silence.
Stories of sexual exploitation and violence are not just headlines – they are the lived experience of thousands of victims. As these atrocities become part of the public discourse, we can begin to hold perpetrators accountable and take steps toward prevention and reparation.
