Report. Support. Match. Connect. Protect.

The #MeToo Movement welcomed a paradigm shift in the cultural and systemic problems of sexual assault and violence in our society. The past three years have welcomed a collective and increased awareness of the problem. Still, there’s much to be done. Survivors continue to bear the burden of proof while being blamed, shamed, and stigmatized for coming forward, while perpetrators still aren’t held accountable in the numbers they should be. The numbers don’t lie:

  • 70+% of rape victims experience severe mental distress
  • 33% of rape victims contemplate suicide
  • 13% of rape victims attempt suicide

  • Send us your experience of what happened after you reported your assault. Positive and negative, your story matters and may be shared on our blog or social media channels, anonymously or identified, with your permission.
  • Head to social media and share one of the photos below using #WhenIReported and tagging @VoicesinAction to help spread awareness and/or share your own story.
  • Search #WhenIReported on social media to read through the experiences of others.
