Be sure to check out The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault’s website. It is important to be aware of these issues. I’ve represented a number of survivors of sexual assault. They are some of the most brave among us.
The Coalition’s website has great advice:
Talk to your children now. Talk to your friends now. Talk to your grandparents now. Make sure you address any inappropriate behaviors that you see now. The simple act of speaking up may seem frightening, but it changes the world in ways that you can’t imagine. You, as an individual, hold the power to start the transformation of your workplace, home, school, and life. The fruit of your efforts will be a community, a family, a workplace, where respect is the norm and where choosing to sexually harass or to sexually assault another person is simply never acceptable.
