The power of speaking out about sexual violence

Oct 4, 2018


  On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss how survivors’ testimony is prompting thousands to speak out. More than 3,000 people called a sexual assault support hotline last Friday, the day after a hearing on allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) says the story has clearly resonated with survivors and led many to reach out for the first time. How are the testimonies, investigation, and media coverage of sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh affecting you? How are you reflecting?
