April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Know that your voice has power. Prevention is possible. It happens at work, at schools, in homes, on the street, online, etc. Everyone is susceptible to harassment/assault at any age.
You don’t want just anyone in your personal space. Everyone’s bubble is different. You should have healthy physical and emotional boundaries with family and friends and those you are just getting to know. Things like not like not sharing intimate details of your life with someone you just met is a healthy boundary. There should be mutual respect.
How you can help support:
– Believe survivors.
– End victim blaming.
– Ask for consent.
– Respect boundaries.
