TOPIC

Threats, Trauma, and Therapy: Supporting Victims of Sexual Violence.

INTRODUCTION

Sexual violence refers to any unwanted sexual contact or activity that is forced or coerced by another person or group of persons. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or background.

Furthermore, the act can also happen anywhere including places that are often thought to be safe spaces such as schools, and medical facilities among others with the National Human Rights Commission receiving over 11,200 rape petitions in 2020 alone.

In addition, survivors of this horrible act which is criminalized globally usually suffer physical, emotional, and psychological harm. Their relationships, work, and well-being are typically impacted as well.

But, what is often the first course of action by survivors?

Is that the best course of action?

How has society treated survivors over the years?

Has it been the best approach?

What support mechanisms are in place?

Are they sustainable?

In recent times, there has been a surge in an outcry for stiffer penalties for perpetrators amidst an onslaught of survivors speaking out which has led to a backlash, threats, and shame campaigns.

How can survivors pull through these?

Are there penalties for stigmatization?

Are they being enforced?

Associate Prof. Hannah Etta, the former National Coordinator of SofaDonDo, and James Ibor Esq. the Principal Counsel at Basic Rights Counsel Initiative were guests.
