||Awareness and positive action
are the best ways to prevent sexual violence. So we'd like you to share
your stories, experiences, and opinions. Don't worry, we won't print
your real name, or anyone else's for that matter, and you might just
help someone prevent violence or just feel better about their own
|Tell us how you've successfully stopped a coercive
or uncomfortable sexual encounter. Or ask other visitors their opinion
of an unclear sexual situation. Share your strategies for intervening
on behalf of a friend. If you didn't intervene in a questionable
situation, tell us how that made you feel. Have you pushed someone in a
way you regret? Did you participate in a sexual situation that you now
see as coercive or forced? You're not alone. None of us are.
Unfortunately, most of us have experienced some kind of sexual assault,
non-consensual sex, or relationship violence. |
|We can use our voices to create awareness,
lessen the pain, and make sure it doesn't happen again. E-mail your
stories, perspectives, and questions to email@example.com subject line "stories"|
