We are an all-women organisation, believing that this allows us to offer the most appropriate and secure support to women and young people affected by rape and other forms of sexual violence. While we acknowledge that men experience rape and sexual violence, we also know that most incidents are committed against women by men, and it is to women that our efforts are primarily directed. Rape and sexual violence are crimes of violence against women and girls which reflect inequality in our society: redressing this inequality defines our work with women and girls who have experienced rape and other forms sexual violence.
