Purpose: This 18-month project aims to reduce the incidence and impact of sexual violence in women and girls in the Tri-County area (South West Nova Scotia). Building on a previous project, the organization will engage 400 young women and 50 young men, as well as service providers and other community members to develop resources, and create opportunities to address sexual violence and hyper-sexualization. Participants will have an increased understanding of sexual violence and hyper-sexualization and its impacts on the security of young women. A blueprint of services and programs that can be effective in the prevention and reduction of sexual violence against young women will be developed with a focus on a response protocol to help women in their communities who are victims of sexual assault.
