No One Asks For It!

Standard

No One Asks For It Facebook ProfileOn Friday, May 2nd, 2014, Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region is asking folks to join the thousands of individuals and organizations across Canada to wear purple in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

In Canada, May is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual abuse and sexualized violence in our communities is far more common than most people think. According to a 2006 Statistics Canada report, one in three women will experience some form of sexual assault in their lifetime.

One of the biggest hurdles people face after a sexual assault is the notion that somehow they “asked for it” by what they were wearing, where they were, what they were doing or drinking. This is victim-blaming.

On May 2nd, let’s make an impact across Canada. Wear purple and show your support of survivors.
