News for May 2016

Posted on May 27, 2016

In commemoration of National Victims and Survivors of Crime Week (May 29 - June 4), we asked survivors of sexual assault: “Who was the first person you told? And why?”

“Part of my healing was telling someone what happened, even though it was really hard to do,” explains Anna, “I felt a lot of shame and confusion because the rapist was someone I was dating at the time.”

Surrey Women’s Centre encourages you to show your support for Anna, and other survivors who have come forward by giving a shout out on social media, using the hashtag #ShoutOut4Survivors.
