Oftentimes we blame ourselves
The main thing in any type of sexual assault, [...] especially if it’s a woman, oftentimes we blame ourselves. I've never had that happen to me, but talking to other people who've gone through these things, it's like, "I shouldn’t have drunk too much," or, "Did I have anything on that was too revealing?". You start second-guessing what you could have done to prevent it, as opposed to, "that person didn’t have the right to have their hands on me," and, "it really doesn’t matter what I had on." So I think it’s important to let the person know that you’re there for them no matter what and go with them wherever they need to go. It's about trust too.
