We launched the #KnowYourRights awareness work on our social media platforms to ensure that rape survivors are aware of the health rights and health services that they are entitled to access. In an effort to speak directly to specific instances of sexual violence, the mini-campaign introduced our online community to 6 characters – characters that we could either see ourselves in or recognise as members of our communities – and their experiences with rape and gender-based violence.

The possibility of a lock down was on everyone’s lips even before the declaration was made. Along with this came uncertainty and anxiety about the future and high levels of anxiety about how one should respond to feel safe from harm. Conflicting stories and opinions and panic buying seemed to be compressed into a few days that simultaneously felt like they lasted for an age. Anxiety felt as contagious as the virus we had all been warned about.
