Many myths exist in our society about sexual assault that serve to justify sexual violence. Rape myths often involve victim-blaming statements about sexual assault such as, “They wouldn’t have gotten raped if they hadn’t been walking alone at night,” or “What did they expect would happen if they went upstairs with them?” These myths place the blame on the wrong person (the victim or survivor) instead of where it belongs (on the perpetrator). Unpacking some of the myths around sexual violence can help us better understand and prevent sexual violence in our community.
