Social matters

Sexual assault is a social problem because…

  • It has consequences for the victims that also affect their social circle.
  • It maintains the fear of being assaulted that women of our society experience.
  • It is the most present violence made toward women in the world.
  • This problem directly comes from the inequal relationship between men and women that has been present in our society through history.
  • This problem is maintained through inaccurate ideas and prejudice that blame women for their assault and which, on the other hand, regards the sex offenders as blameless.
