We know we’ve been a little quiet lately, and we think we owe you an explanation.
Hannah started Revolt Sexual Assault with the aim of raising awareness of the extent of sexual assault and harassment at university.
16 months later, we have achieved more than we ever expected. Sexual assault has been launched into the public conversation, partly thanks to our campaign, but also because of movements like #metoo and #timesup.
A change of face
But we want to do more than raise awareness. We want to create lasting change. To do that, we’ve needed to take a step back, plan our next steps, and identify how we’re going to move forward.
So what will this all look like? We’re currently undergoing a slight redesign, a new look to welcome in our new chapter. But it’s not just our face that’s changing.
Our new website will be more comprehensive; we’re going to report on the progress, and set backs, surrounding sexual violence at universities in the UK, through news stories, in depth features, and comment pieces from experts.
Behind the scenes, we will also be working to develop policies and advise universities about how to keep improving, to best support survivors of sexual violence.
But we want you to be part of this. So if you have any ideas about what you think we should be covering, or issues you want to raise, please let us know. Likewise, if you’d like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what your skills are and how you’d like to help.
That could be research, illustration, writing, editing, campaigning…
And, as always, your stories will be our focus. Our aim has been to give survivors of sexual violence a voice, and that is definitely not going change. So if you’d like to share anything, please drop us an email and we will work with you to tell your story in a way that suits you.
We’re so excited about the next few months, and all that’s coming afterwards. Thank you for being part of Revolt Sexual Assault, we hope you stick with us on the next part of our journey.
