Three out of 5 girls have either been sexually assaulted by someone they know or a spouse. The few who dare talk about it recieve a backlash greater than the act itself.
Room has hardly been given for expression especially victims of rape. All forms of rape are punisheable by law but the ick is the fact that you most have prove. Quick question, how do you ask a kid to show proof of something she doesnot even know the definition.
The consequences of rape can go from trauma, change of personality, denial, sexual assault on others in the future, depression and the list goes on.
Some women have been scard to an extend of refusing any contact with men, turning into lesbians or shun any aspect maleness.
The scars never go away because we grow up or we try to forget, they only go silent until another event makes the wound fresh again. Teach ur children, girls and boys the different parts of the body which are private, not to be touched by anybody including relatives. Train them to speak out if any of this should happen. Reassure survivors of rape that it is not the end, but a new start.
