Today, members of the Elizabethtown Area Christian Women’s Connection joined us at Silverleaf Sexual Trauma Recovery Svcs. to volunteer their time! They wrote notes of hope and encouragement for survivors to be included in our hospital comfort bags. 💙 • • • • • #silverleafky   #sexualassault   #sexualabuse   #rape   #crisiscenter   #sexualviolence   #sexualabuseawareness   #crisishotline   #nonprofit   #prevention   #endvictimblaming   #stopcsa   #preventionmatters   #webelieveyou   #kynonprofit   #supportsurvivors   #believesurvivors  

As we observe nationalindigenouspeoplesday, it is important to know this sobering fact. Large cultural and intergenerational traumas, the complexities of tribal law and jurisdiction, and scarce resources make sexual violence a prevalent concern for the indigenous communities, both on and off the reservation. #indigenouspeoplesday   #triballaw   #indigenouswomen   #culturaltrauma   #supportsurvivors   #believesurvivors   #sexualassault   #rape   #abuse   #rapeculture   #metoo   #metoomanyvoices   #victim   #survivor   #education   #support   #mentoo   #trauma   #ptsd   #traumaawareness   #statistic   #stoprapenow   #sexualviolence   #domesticviolence   #amnestyinternational

A few important things to remember about trauma: . 🌱Trauma is unique for each person. It is vital that we validate and respect each individual’s experience . ⌚️Experiencing trauma is not linear. People who experience trauma have amazing days, terrible days, and everything in between. . 🛠Although trauma may not disappear, there are tools you can use to manage trauma symptoms when they arise . 🤝Help and support are here for you when you need them. Our hotlines are available 24/7 . 💜Domestic Violence Hotline: 203-575-0036 . 💙Sexual Assault Hotline: 203-753-3613 . . .

Boundaries are something that is present in all type of relationships. And sometimes with setting them you may need to pause or reflect before you make a permanent one. Doing that is okay. Sometimes you want to rush to give an answer about something but you don’t have to. Do you have some to add to this list? ——————————————————————————————— #projectsave   #projectsavephilly   #thehealingcrew   #thehealingwarriors   #sexualviolence   #domesticviolence   #westoppingallofthat   #healingfromwithin   #healonepersonatatime   #yourtime   #educationisliberation   #vibeattractsyourvibe   #survivetothrive   #projectsavesveryown   #SAVEphilly   #howyougonnawinifyoudonthealfromwithin  

I've talked about victim-shaming by others. I've rarely mentioned how my own rapist shamed me. She raped me both during that night and morning. The next day, she yelled at me because her vagina was sore. Really. It was my fault that her vagina hurt - from raping me. Twice. #whyididnotreport   #whyididntreport   #metoo   #metoomovement   #rapeculture   #sexualviolence   #rapesurvivor   #rapevictim   #rapecultureiswhen   #rapecultureisreal   #itsonus   #endrapeculture   #believesurvivors   #endrape   #sexualassault   #femalerapist   #thisisnotconsent  

My journey to healing I was stuck and depressed for years. Beating myself up for all the choices I've made and shame I felt. You don't know what you don't know. When you do you can learn from it even when you fall and trip over the same things. You get back up and you try again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week I ignored a red flag and I should have not engage 2x. I felt it and the damage was done. I knew how he was and I set myself up for disappointment. It hurt me and I did it to myself. I knew better and I couldn't blame my ex. It was on me. Things like this would get me stuck for years, months, weeks, and days. I took ownership for it and learned from it. I needed to firm up my boundary after having a breakdown and conversation with him. I had to let go of guilt and what I needed to do to protect myself and my son. I got back up and forgave myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Healing is not meant to be perfect but to help you grow, progress, and change. You take 2 steps forward to taking 5 steps back. You get stuck. You fall down. You keep looking back and going back to the things that hurt you. It's a journey and you learn to get back up and keep going. Take another step. Forgive yourself because you messed up and get back up my friend.

To celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day, we are highlighting the extremely high rates of sexual violence against Native women. Sexual violence against Native women is the result of a number of factors and continues a history of widespread human rights abuses against Indigenous peoples in the U.S. Historically, Native American women were raped by settlers and soldiers, including during the Trail of Tears and the Long Walk of the Navajo. Such attacks were not random or individual; they were tools of conquest and colonization. The attitudes towards Indigenous peoples that underpin such human rights abuses continue to be present in the USA today. They contribute to the present high rates of sexual violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and help to shield their attackers from justice . . . . . . #metoo   #metoospringfield   #metoosgf   #sexualassault   #sexualharrassment   #timesup   #sexualassaultandharrassment   #sexualassaultawareness   #sexualassaultawarenessmonth   #indigenouswomen   #nonprofitorganization   #indigenouspeoplesday   #supportsurvivors   #endsexualviolence   #endsexualassault   #ibelieveyou   #consentissexy   #consent   #sexualviolence   #socialjustice   #socialjusticewarrior   #sexualassaultsurvivor   #nativeamerican   #nomeansno   #metoomovement   #springfieldmo   #417land   #417events   #417nonprofits

Ibland kan det kännas som att vi ställer ultimatums när vi sätter ned gränser. Men det finns en skillnad mellan dessa två som gör ena giftig och den andra hälsosam. Gränser sätter vi för att skydda och värna om oss själva, ultimatum ställer vi för att bestraffa den andra personen för något de gör eller inte gör. Det är bra att vi kan skillnaden så vi inte bara kan checka oss själva, men mest av allt se när andra försöker utöva makt och kontroll över oss genom ultimatums. Kan vi sätta ord på vad som händer så har vi även satt fingret på problemet. #emotional   #emotionalabuse   #emotionalvampires   #manipulation   #mindgames   #sociopath   #narcissists   #sexualabuse   #sexualviolence   #ptsd   #complexptsd   #cptsd   #gaslighting   #ptsdrecovery   #cptsdrecovery   #psykologi   #emotionallabour   #emotionallabor   #healing   #community   #invicta   #survivor   #psykiskhälsa   #psykiskohälsa   #invicta_community   #tillsammansärvistarkare   #våldinärarelationer

Sexual violence is the most underreported crime and perpetrators are less likely to go to prison than any other type of criminal...And such continues the cycle of survivors not feeling safe to report but being blamed for not reporting. ♾ We need a reframing that actually listens to and supports survivors & makes abusers accountable. #prosecuterapists   #saferreporting   #supportsurvivors   #believesurvivors   #stoprapeeducate   #sexualassault   #rape   #abuse   #rapeculture   #metoo   #metoomanyvoices   #victim   #survivor   #education   #support   #mentoo   #trauma   #ptsd   #traumaawareness   #rapeculture   #nsvrc   #rainn   #statistic   #stoprapenow   #sexualviolence   #enoughisenough   #makeitsafetoreport

Written by: @montinaart⁠ Illustration by:@claire.prouvost⁠ ⁠ I was 18 on vacation in Mexico with my parents. Like most 18 year olds I was boy crazy, and like most virgins I had a throbbing sexual aura. My mom and I went to a local water park. We are in line for the Mexican version of the lazy river, when I see a hunky curly blonde looking my way. I was wearing a black string bikini and middle age metabolism and a baby hadn't hit me yet. His name was Ryan and we floated down the river very asking each other a million questions. We went on a date walking through Playa de Carmen. I was beaming, it was all so romantic. I find out that night Ryan is here for his brothers wedding and next thing I know I'm his date! The wedding was in a few days so before that we ventured around his resort. Each family had a beautiful suite but nothing was more beautiful than the honey moon suite. Ryan waves a card in my face and asks if I'd like to go up. On a sunny afternoon we snuck up to a room made for husband and wife with the rose pedals and the champagne. The scenery and the act of it all was the most memorable, that and a lot of pressure to have sex. But because I was a virgin it was four play all the way. We tidied the sheets and snuck back down. The next day I was a random date at a beautiful wedding on the beach in Mexico.”⁠ ⁠ DM for a copy of this print!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #survivor⁠   #timesup⁠   #rapevictim⁠   #mentalhealth⁠   #feminist⁠   #cptsd⁠   #repost⁠   #anxiety⁠   #sexualviolence⁠   #believewomen⁠   #feminism⁠   #rapeculture⁠   #depression⁠   #support⁠   #childabuse⁠   #childhoodtrauma⁠   #speakup⁠   #mentalhealthawareness   #illustration   #art   #artist   #paint   #painting   #linework   print ⁠

This kind of teaching should be compulsory to all healthcare professionals. To all gps, nurses in hospitals and gp surgery's who carry out smear tests but not in specialised clinics for sexual assault survivors. The gps and nurses who maybe aren't as empathetic and understanding as they could be when a woman needs time to compose herself before they want to shove the speculum in without detailing to her what she is doing step by step. The gps and nurses who tut and sigh because it's taking longer than two minutes to carry out a smear. The gps and nurses who scoff "get over yourself and lay back and think of England!" When all the woman can think about is how this is triggering the moment she was raped. I'm not saying all gps and nurses are like this. But to the ones that ARE this is particularly beneficial. Sexual violence happens. Fact. Women are triggered. Fact. Be less ignorant and more patient. Get to learn ways to provide a dignified smear which is non triggering without scolding them for it. Just an idea. 🤷👏 #mybodybackproject   #sexualviolence   #survivor   #standtogether   #smears   #smeartest   tipsandtricks s #dignifiedsmearsforall   #bekind   #empathy   #empowerment   #empoweringwomen @mybodybackproject

These last sessions are for people who have survived sexual violence and want to begin the process of healing. It is open to all genders, sexualities and ages. Please come and let us help each other carry our pain.

Heb je de nieuwe Marie Claire @marieclaire_nl al gezien? Wij zijn ontzettend blij dat zij aandacht besteden aan seksueel geweld binnen relaties en bedankt ook dat www.safewomen.nl is genoemd. Vaak is seksueel geweld in relaties een taboe omdat men denkt dat seks er nu eenmaal bij hoort, dat je geen nee mag zeggen tegen je partner, of dat je partner recht heeft op seks met jou en dus mag doen wat hij/zij wil. Maar aanranding en verkrachting kan ook gebeuren binnen een relatie. Heb je hier mee te maken? Of met andere vormen van partnergeweld? Kijk eens op www.safewomen.nl. Het @centrumseksueelgeweld staat ook voor je klaar. #marieclaire   #marieclairenl   #seksueelgeweld   #seksgeweld   #relatiegeweld   #partnergeweld   #huiselijkgeweld   #SAFE   #safewomen   Radboudumc @radboudumc #centrumseksueelgeweld   #intimatepartnerviolence   #sexualviolence   #domesticviolence  

FGM is a form of child abuse. It's dangerous and a criminal offence in the every state in Australia. We know: ⚡️there are no medical reasons to carry out FGM ⚡️it's often performed by someone with no medical training, using instruments such as knives, scalpels, scissors, glass or razor blades ⚡️children are rarely given anaesthetic or antiseptic treatment and are often forcibly restrained ⚡️it's used to control female sexuality and can cause long-lasting damage to physical and emotional health. To protect girls from fgm please donate to Desert Flower Centre Australia by contacting the ACHA Foundation on (08) 8275 3587 or [email protected] and specify that your donation is in Support of Desert Flower Centre Australia.

One of the oddest things about being raped by a woman are the ridiculous questions people ask: "So, you were hard, right?" "How did you stay hard?" "Did she orgasm?" "Did you get to orgasm too?" "I mean, did it feel good?" "Was she hot?" Men AND women ask this shit. #whyididnotreport   #whyididntreport   #metoo   #metoomovement   #rapeculture   #sexualviolence   #rapesurvivor   #rapevictim   #rapecultureiswhen   #rapecultureisreal   #itsonus   #endrapeculture   #believesurvivors   #endrape   #sexualassault   #femalerapist   #thisisnotconsent

Picked up another mug for my campus collection. This one is from William Paterson University. When I visit campuses to discuss sexual violence, I add another mug on the way home.

A draft cover of my collection of essays since going public with my own experience. I've spent longer than I wanted making some decisions on how to incorporate the change in my approach to this topic over time. As this collection tells the story of my healing in real time without the benefit of anonymity, some of the older commentaries are raw, angry, and even profane at times. I was triggered, angry, despondent, absolutely over it, and desperate at times. I've decide to proceed with those pieces as they demonstrate what it looked like and felt like. I will be adding caveats that explain my state of mind in order to maintain the integrity of my writing while the reader follows my experience over the last decade. Anyway. #whyididnotreport   #whyididntreport   #metoo   #metoomovement   #rapeculture   #sexualviolence   #rapesurvivor   #rapevictim   #rape   #rapecultureiswhen   #rapecultureisreal   #itsonus   #endrapeculture   #believesurvivors   #endrape   #sexualassault
