Men Against Rape campaign - International Women's Day 2016

For International Women's Day 2016 (8th March), HS Consultancy is launching a campaign "Men Against Rape". The primary aim is to encourage discussion and awareness amongst men that there are no fuzzy edges in relation to sexual violence in the form of sex without consent. We are selling T Shirts and ALL profits will go to Trust House, Reading (a support service for people who have experienced sexual violence) and will raise the profile of the campaign through social and traditional media. Visit the shop on this site and select the desired size.

This local campaign may have interest for areas outside of Reading.  This campaing is part of the move away from a focus on teaching women and girls how not to get raped and teaching men and boys how not to rape.  The back of the T Shirt uses some quotes that reflect the comments (or thoughts) of men, young and old, in everyday situations.  A campaign cannot by itself correct the ills in society by the hope is that this will be part of a change in the conventional narrative about who rapes, what rape looks like, the role of men in preventing rape and the conditions that support this act of violence.
