Sexual violence is increasingly common and harmful to communities and individuals. Over half of women and 1 in 3 men have dealt with this. It evidently hurts groups differently as it is more common with women and ethnic minorities.

  • Eating Disorders

  • Fear of relationships

  • Destructive relationship with body

  • Drug use

  • Poor work performance

  • Sexual health issues
