THE ISSUE FOR
Three in five students suffer sexual harassment during their studies.
Only 2% actually feel able to report the incident to their university.
Only half of surveyed students believed there’s an understanding of consent in university.
Students victims of sexual violence often drop out of university.
Over 70% of sexual violence victims experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) within two weeks following the incident.
Self-recrimination is a common reaction among victims and can ultimately contribute to PTSD.
Over 62% of university rape survivors blame themselves for the attack.
Studies show that sexual abuse is a significant antecedent of suicidal behaviour.
