Sexual Assault Awareness collection

This April we mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This is a time when we raise awareness of sexual violence and discuss ways to prevent it. To support this we have created a collection of free articles from the Journal of Gender-Based Violence exploring some of the many aspects of sexual assault. The collection is free to read throughout April and includes:

The continuum of symbolic violence: how sexting education neglects image-based sexual abuse, dismisses perpetrators’ responsibility, and violates rights to sexual autonomy
Julia Zauner

Digital intrusions: technology, spatiality and violence against women
Bridget Harris and Laura Vitis

‘Risk of sexual violence against women and girls’ in the construction of ‘gender-neutral toilets’: a discourse analysis of comments on YouTube videos
Ben Colliver and Adrian Coyle

Out of place: women’s experiences of policing in protest spaces
Helen Monk and Will Jackson

The case processing of intimate partner sexual assault: a brief review and recommendations for future research

Agency, resistance and the non-‘ideal’ victim: how women deal with sexual violence
