It's Time to address Sexual Violence in Political Institutions

We are taking a survivor-centred, trauma-informed approach to addressing sexual violence in politics. Young women are at the forefront of various political and social justice campaigns, and this exposes them to a variety of acts of gender-based sexual violence that often goes unnoticed on the campaign trail. Our resources will not only bring attention to this prevalent issue, but will provide tools and information on creating harassment-free spaces that encourage young women's civic engagement.
