I believe strongly in the fact that knowledge is power. Sexual Trauma is a taboo subject that is often not addressed or acknowledged in our society, leaving many Survivors left to navigate the journey on their own. This leaves Survivors feeling very isolated and alone. When we encourage silence, it further creates the shame of being a Survivor, which leaves many Survivors feeling like they cannot share what happened to them out of fear of lack of support. The more we encourage education and knowledge around Sexual Trauma, the more support there is for Survivors to come forward and share that this happened to them, knowing that there will be resources available to them, that they won't be alone. Silence does not accomplish anything, except isolation and furthering the pain that was endured.
