This presentation encourages rethinking current assumptions, examining expectations, and employing a lens of masculinity to enhance existing skills for those working with male survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
As 2018 draws to a close, we’ve been reflecting on the many friends and allies we have made in the past 11 years, and want to invite you to consider joining that growing group.
“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.
