Sexual Assault Prevention Tips

As part of our Always Ask campaign, we promote and encourage a shared responsibility to make changes on the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault. It is imperative that we shift from complainant blaming to a shared responsibility for the prevention and mitigation of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Complainant blaming refers to attitudes, statements and actions that place responsibility for causing and preventing sexual assault on the individual who has experienced sexual assault.
