Marie Claire magazine is looking for survivors of sexual assault or rape, ages 18-45, of all ethnicities and from all states who had a rape kit done, and are willing to be photographed for their November, 2009, issue as a part of a larger story regarding untested rape kits. Marie Claire will arrange the photo at no cost to the survivor. This story is part of their effort to make untested rape kits a national priority.
There are also many on-line forums for survivors to share their story. Some of them are listed in our on-line resource section, Resources by survivors for survivors
. You should carefully review the privacy policies of any site before sharing your story.
Every survivor experiences sexual violence differently, and every survivor can add to our understanding of the problem of sexual violence. Together we can work toward creating a world without sexual violence.
