Even though it’s not their fault
I think in those situations, a lot of [victims] blame themselves for the incident, even though it’s NOT their fault. [...] So, I feel like the victim would need support from their friends the most. Their friends should be very supportive and thoughtful. They have to be brave and ready to speak.
Present learning materials in a way that is helpful to a friend supporting a victim/survivor.
Ensure all sexual violence prevention and response education and training opportunities actively deconstruct victim-blaming, rape myths and gender norms. Ensure these sessions take an intersectional approach to understanding sexual violence and supporting victim/survivors.
