How Revealing!

Th​is a safe space to share your experiences of sexual assault, gender-based violence, sexism and bystander intervention. You can post anonymously, be of any gender identity and need not be someone who has directly experienced it.

How Revealing seeks to help reduce victim-blaming and shaming, and the stigma and silence surrounding gender-based violence and sexual assault. You can also look up support organizations if you need.
