The most important thing is how to protect the survivor

The most important is how to protect the survivor, let her feel better. Not just "her", sometimes it is a boy, right? Because [...] before in the old times, maybe this happened more to girls, but nowadays, this happens to the boys too. So we need to pay attention to the other side, that’s all.


  • Use approaches that are trauma informed and survivor-centred.

  • In education and awareness campaigns, highlight the fact that a significant percentage of men have experienced sexual violence in their lives.
