In the event of an assault, the single most important thing a rape victim can do is tell someone, be it the police, a friend, a community-based rape crisis center or a counselor.

Don’t isolate yourself, don’t feel guilty, don’t blame yourself, and don’t just ignore it.

Rape, whether by a stranger or someone you know, is a violation of your body and your trust.
