There is a little bit of a gender bias
I feel like there is a little bit of a gender bias, because, well, especially in the Caribbean, males are less likely to report sexual violence than females. I feel like because of that, you are not gonna have as many males coming forward as you would females. And I don’t really think it’s the policy's fault or it can’t really fault the policy. But like, it's still - it's not inviting to males because they don’t want to be embarrassed. They must know it's okay; like, it happened, and they can also report and talk about their struggle as well.
Including male students across cultures in discussions of sexual violence, gender stereotypes, and stereotypes of masculinity.
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.
In education and awareness campaigns, highlight the fact that a significant percentage of men have experienced sexual violence in their lives.
