On Tuesday the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre visited our students as part of the Long Road Sixth Form College Anti-Bullying Campaign.
Ellie Ball and Rosie Levine – Independent Sexual Violence Advocates from Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre presented “Understanding and Responding to Sexual Violence”. They introduced the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre’s services, defined what sexual violence is, who perpetrates sexual violence, who it affects and summarised the law. Consent and the Myths about Sexual Violence were unpacked with thought provoking videos.
Barriers to disclosing sexual violence, the disclosing experience and what happens after a disclosure were discussed. Advice was given as how to best support friends after they disclose.This was followed by a Long Road student’s brave and articulate sharing of the reality of being a young woman today. A dynamic and challenging Q&A followed.
We’d like to thank the Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre for visiting us this week and delivering this informative and though provoking session!
