LET’S CHANGE ATTITUDES
Despite many efforts by society to condemn sexual crimes, many women and children are raped every day. We have come to the point where some see rape as normal. They blame the victims because of what they were wearing.
That’s wrong. Rape is about power and control, not sex. There are no grey areas when it comes to sexual violence and harassment. Unwanted touching, inappropriate comments or sex by force happen every day – but it is never okay.
Lend a hand in helping society to build safer homes, communities, workplaces, campuses and schools that are more responsive to sexual violence. By changing our attitudes and providing more support for survivors we can make our environment safer. We need to work together in condemning sexual crimes and making sure those who commit them are severely punished. ABIGAIL LEDUBUKO, EMAIL
