this pack will support you in releasing some of the heavy weight of blame that yourself or others have placed on you after being subjected to sexual violence & abuse.
we invite you to write down all of the victim-blaming messages you have heard, been told or told yourself (ie. 'she shouldn't have got so drunk,' 'why didn't you say no?' 'she led him on') onto the plate. we then invite you to smash it up! this may help release some of the anger & blame attached to these words & we hope you feel a little lighter afterwards.
this pack also includes a set of 4 postcards & a sticker to keep, to offer you some gentle reminders of your worth & how the blame is not yours to carry. if you'd like to, we also invite you to share pictures of your plate (either intact or smashed up!) with us on social media.
this pack includes:
a short informative resource on victim-blaming
a set of 4 illustrated postcards featuring affirmations to support you in challenging victim-blaming
an 'end victim-blaming' decorative sticker
we hope this pack helps you to put down & smash up the heavy weight of any blame you may be feeling or has been placed onto you by others.
we will continue to challenge victim-blaming.
