    Student Safety: Let's acknowledge sexual assault!

      I understand this is a highly triggering and a sensitive issue that people do not want, are scared of and do not know how to approach but maybe we could start here. There is one issue on my mind that has been neglected by the universities in Edinburgh and that is: the limited support or awareness for rape/ sexual assault survivors around the campuses. As 1 in 4 women, 1 in 6 children and 1 in 20 men experience sexual assault in UK (, I truly believe this is not something that can be omitted and should be addressed. The recovery process of a victim is not easy, it can create long-term physical and psychological damage to a person causing them to fail or struggle at universities as one result. Due to the wrongful image that society has created of sexual assault; this trauma is unfortunately a silent one where thousands suffer alone. An awareness campaign could exploit wrongful assumptions about sexual assault and offer knowledge and resources that are easily accessed (e.g., an app on the phone or information on their website) as with the platform and the power the higher education has, a change could be achieved. I have many ideas for campiagns that would adress this but I need your help!
