More Funding for Resources to help Sexual Assault Victims

This petition had 18 supporters

Sexual assault and rape victims are stigmatised as dirty, promiscuous and in the wrong. This needs to change, and fast. Too many people are not taking their cases to the police as they know their attacker, so more resources (such as helplines, support and counsellors) are needed to help inform and ask the hard questions of governments - why is so little funding going into these initiatives? 

The Oak Initiative has been created on behalf of a University Social Innovation Campaign, and hopes to achieve ultimately more awareness, less stigma for victims and more funding. See more at >
