Through our frontline work, we know that sexual violence survivors often struggle with feelings of shame, guilt and self-blame that can make it difficult to talk to anyone about their experiences. Survivors also often fear that others will blame them or that they won’t be believed. Sexual violence myths can reinforce these feelings and fears.
This is why PRCCG is committed to dispelling myths and raising awareness and understanding of sexual violence, as well as providing services to survivors. Our aim in this is to reduce, prevent and ultimately end sexual violence, and to help to create a wider environment in which survivors feel safe and confident to seek the support and justice they need, want and deserve.
