“A lot of people colloquially just see this sort of thing as something that happens to women,” Seth Stewart, director of development and communications at 1in6, a group that offers resources for male-identified survivors of unwanted sexual experiences, told Vox.
One organization that caters to male-identified survivors, called 1in6, told CNN on Friday that it had seen “about a 20% increase” over the prior week across several platforms — web traffic was up, as was its 24/7 support line and its social media channels.
Men who are sexual assault survivors are often left out of the conversation due to social stigma around male sexual abuse. Visit 1in6.org to be connected to online support groups.
Sexual assault survivors are often thought of as women. In a PSA from the advocacy group 1in6, women were asked to read aloud different accounts of sexual abuse or assault. In the video, the majority of the readers assumed the survivors were women.
