The Need for Conversation

Despite the rising awareness of sexual violence in today’s society, there is still much dispute over the classification of sexual assault and date rape as intolerable and criminal behavior.

This is due to the many misconceptions and mythologies associated with the issue which have developed over time negative attitudes towards talking about it and therefore created a polarisation of opinions and understandings in both males and females.

Yes, sexual assault is a difficult topic to talk about. However, this does not mean there is something wrong with being open about it and discussing it.

There is a lack of conversation and truth surrounding the issue and the message “it’s alright to talk about it” needs to be promoted.

This blog is aiming to create a virtual community of trusting individuals who can turn to each other for both support and the sharing of opinions and stories.
