6th to 12th February 2017, is “Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week.” I have spoken recently in a couple of posts about rape. The first post was rather brief in ‘Unseen.’ I then spoke about it a bit more, in my post called, ‘To feel clean.’
Sexual abuse and violence is unacceptable and this type of abuse can happen to anyone, all ages, any gender, ethnicity or cultural background.
Sexual abuse and violence is unacceptable.
Perpetrators need to know that this will NOT be tolerated and more action is being taken.
The awareness week is an opportunity for everyone to participate in a discussion and raise the awareness on this matter.
