We Are With You
A note from Kathy Walsh, Executive Director.
Sexual assault is not a result of poor decision-making on the part of the victim. It is not an accident. Drinking is not an excuse for raping an unconscious woman. Being more concerned about the impact of sexual assault on the perpetrator rather than the victim is just wrong.
Last week when a judge sentenced the former Stanford swimmer who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman to six months in jail because a longer sentence would have had "a severe impact on him," we felt outrage, anger, and disgust for a criminal justice system that continues to blame victims and fails to hold perpetrators accountable for sexual violence.
