S3 : E6 \ Fear of Reporting Sexual Assault | Relationships, Life

Fxck Fear

16-12-2021 • 1 hr 11 mins

Power and control are two aspects of sexual assault that create fear, causing victims to stay silent about what’s happened to them. In light of the recent USA Gymnastics Nassar abuse settlement, the #MeToo movement, and so many cases that are underreported, this episode is extremely important!!

Host Catenya McHenry speaks with Yulanda McCarty-Harris, J.D., sexual assault researcher at the Institute for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at the University of Texas at Austin. The two talk about the fears victims face before they decide to report, including fear of retaliation, and why some sexual assault victims believe a crime never happened and what to do if you have been sexually assaulted.
