YOUR VOICE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE - Claim YOUR right to SPEAK OUT
Many survivors of domestic & sexual abuse suffer in silence. Silence & invisibility allows many problems to continue. It can be difficult, but NO MATTER WHAT YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, choosing to speak out allows YOUR VOICE TO MAKE AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION. You have a right to be heard, a right to maintain your full anonymity, & a right to tell your story without having to fear that you don't conform to the 'right' stereotypes. By completing an online survey, you maintain total anonymity [we never meet you or ask your name, & we cannot identify you in any way], & yet you are making a very important contribution.
Violence & sexual abuse affects everyone in our community. EVERYONE over 16 is eligible to complete the survey, and you are warmly invited to do so. We need large numbers of females & males of all sexual orientations - both people who have experienced trauma, & those who have not (to form control groups). You can also help by letting other people know about this survey - in fact, we'd really appreciate that.
