Campaign: To encourage better support for survivors of rape

Before I was raped, I never thought it would happen to me.

What makes it even worse is when people don’t believe you, or think that because a woman was dressed in a certain way, or had been drinking, that it’s somehow partly her fault.

Initially, I felt other people were blaming me and I was too ashamed to stand up and tell them they were wrong.

But the truth is there is absolutely no excuse for this crime.

With Fixers, I want to campaign for better support for those who have been raped.

I want those affected to be confident in speaking out and reporting what’s happened to them, so they never have to feel alone.
