Why Develop an Information Kit on Sexual Assault for the Media?

  • Because sexual assault, due to its scope and impact on victims and society, is a major public health problem.
  • Because the media is the main source of information on sexual assault for a large share of the population.
  • Because the media has a determining influence on the perceptions and attitudes of the population with regard to sexual assault.
  • Because information transmitted by the media can play a leading role in preventing sexual assault.
