The Office on Violence Against Women has recognized April as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The 2008 theme is “Prevent Sexual Violence…in our workplaces.”
OVW Director Cindy Dyer said:
Participating in opportunities to speak out about the crime of sexual assault is an important step to stopping this violent crime against women. During April 2008, designated as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, I encourage everyone to use resources being publicized and to participate in events, discussions and programs to increase public awareness about this crime that affects 1 in 6 American women. Working together we can change attitudes, continue to support victims and hold perpetrators responsible.
