"The women I know, myself included, are done playing the credentials game. We are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir. And the more we are a choir, the more the tune is forced to change."
– Amber Tamblyn
Most victims of sexual assault falsely assume they are alone and there is nothing they can do about their experience. Their helplessness can breed shame; their shame can silence them for a lifetime; their silence enables their abuser to continue abusing them and others.
Estimates are that 60% to 90% of sexual abuse goes unreported. Women are the victims in 90% of the cases and college-age women are the most highly targeted. Meanwhile, 70% of victims can identify their offender because it is a friend, a co-worker, neighbor or a relative. Sexual abuse is a crime that is typically recommitted. All this together means that certain offenders can carry on recommitting abuses against dozens of victims for decades.
This ends now.
We are developing a closed and private network for victims of sexual harassment and abuse. Survivors can report an incident and identify their perpetrator through social media. We will connect victims of abuse privately, enabling them to communicate directly and empowering them to take action together.
The easier it is for victims to connect, communicate and offer each other support, the harder it will become for perpetrators to continue violating others.
If you have personal or professional experience with sexual harassment or abuse, please join this choir today and help us end this senseless cycle of violations.
