"Silence" is a short documentary film narrated through personal experience of partner rape, and reveals the wider implications of rape myths. You can see the film at : www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVy18zK-ULw

Sharon, a Senior Lecturer in Psychology explains the prevalence of acquaintance rape, countering the common myth that all rapists are strangers. She also explains that only a minority of victims receive justice.

Joanne has worked directly with victims and thinks victim stereotypes are dangerous. She illustrates that false stereotypes around the way women behave in the aftermath of sexual violence can lead to survivors of acquaintance rape being routinely disbelieved and blamed for their abuse.

The mother and sister of a rape survivor talk directly about their experiences with public and police reactions, talking about the damage that rape myths can cause.

Making Recovery a Reality
Making Recovery a Reality

"Making recovery a reality" is a new film from Rape Crisis Scotland which looks at the impact of sexual violence on survivors and highlights the support services offered by the Rape Crisis network in Scotland. Women who have been supported by Rape Crisis centres describe their own journeys of recovery and the part that Rape Crisis has played in making their recovery a reality. We are enormously grateful to everyone who took part in the making of the film.
