Let’s say you’re a single mom who has lost your job and had some financial problems. Chances are your credit score has taken a hit. If you look for help from a big bank, you probably won’t get far. But if you’re a wealthy felon — even a registered sex offender designated at the highest risk of re-offending — the bank’s doors will be thrown wide open.
Our Work in Progress
Fighting sexual violence and sexual harassment in the workplace, in the community, on the campus.
We champion the voice of lived experiences and survivor narratives in advocating for transformative, trauma-informed policy and legislative changes. We bring the voice of compassion and healing solutions to victims around the world who reach out to us every day.
Working for better health outcomes for victims.
We’re calling for a national strategy on the health risks and neurobiological impacts of sexual violence and sexual harassment. We’re spearheading a more robust approach to preventing suicide, which is becoming a health crisis.
Calling out institutional betrayal.
Sexual violence and related abuses will never be ended until we end the culture of fear and silence that institutional betrayal,and the life-threatening harms they produce.
Bringing trauma-informed awareness and disclosure to the work of lawmakers and public institutions.
We’ve proposed trauma-informed training for legislators and public officials. We were the first to call for sunshine laws that will allow women to measure the progress of #MeToo reforms. Several governments have adopted our proposals. We’ve been relentless champions for ending forced non-disclosure agreements that protect predators and enabling organizations, and for safe job re-entry campaigns for victims whose careers have been blacklisted and devastated by retaliation.
Fighting for healing. It’s my story. I’m telling it so it won’t become yours one day.
Pushing back against life-shattering wrongdoing by the Ontario Securities Commission, whose top management and board of directors use Harvey Weinstein-type stunts to punish, shame and silence — and Ontario Premier Doug Ford who willingly enables it. No woman is safe as long as public officials can get away with this, and in plain sight.
#MeToo is moving in the wrong direction for too many victims.
Coming forward should never make things worse. But for too many victims, that’s been the outcome. We need to take a closer look at the conditions that allow this to happen. The masterful work of Ronan Farrow also shows us that we need to look more carefully at the role of the media in the #MeToo era. They’ve typically shown little interest in the aftermath of coming forward, which can be the period of greatest risk to the well-being, and even the lives, of victims.
