"[After the second time I was raped] I could already feel the disgust of society weighing on me. I slowly began to gather my belongings up, and stumble to the taxi rank. Upon arrival, I was not greeted with concern or worry but the few people that were there, but rather a disapproving look as I stood there my top and skirt ripped, looking like a true slut. The victims of this atrocious act, do blame themselves because of it I know I did. I thought, maybe if my skirt was a couple of inches longer, my top a couple of inches higher, this would not of happened. No use come of this way of thinking, I became a shadow of who I used to be I never went out I was scared to wear anything that was to revealing. Until, one day my Mum had finally had enough. She walked into my room where I was curled up on my bed pretending to read the latest magazine, and she said you can’t carry on like this. You are letting them win! You are no longer a victim rather a survivor, you need to get up and show the world that this behaviour is not ok, otherwise so many other girls will go through what you went through. She was right. I did not want others to suffer like I had done. Now I am hoping to help you."

This is the blog of a rape survivor who, after having survived multiple attacks, now wants to help others. This is what she says: ‘I beg of you if your are sitting there holding in a secret like this or any other secrets that you feel you can not tell anyone else as you fear discrimination or judgement, email me, it will help you transform from a Victim to a Survior - [email protected]

Why SlutWalk London?

"I am walking because I was raped. I am walking because two thirds of people who answered a survey would say I am to blame for my rape. The only person to blame is the man who raped me.I am so angry with the lack of justice, the hundreds and thousands of rapists who walk away. I am angry because the survivors of rape are victimised again and again. If we report it (I did) we are forced to re-live it in horrendous detail several times over. We feel violated again when the CPS decides not to prosecute after all and he simply walks away. We are not victims. We were victims, for a moment in time. Now, we are survivors."
