Survivors Speak Out

In this project survivors who want to speak out about their rape experiences are offered opportunities to do so whenever a journalist approaches Rape Crisis for a story.  The organisation then acts as a go between, liaison and support for both the survivor and the journalist, making sure that everyone feels safe, supported and respected in this process.  The benefits of survivors speaking out include:

  • Encouraging other survivors to seek help
  • Challenging the myths about rape in our society
  • Waking society up to the realities of rape in South Africa
  • Challenging perpetrators to stop raping
  • Serving as a healing opportunity for the survivor who speaks out
