Dear Society, are we doing enough to stop rape?

Amy Rodger, 22

Despite the increase in awareness of the pervasiveness of sexual assault with our society there is by no means enough action being taken. It disgusted me to hear that 1 in 7 women within higher education will are victims of sexual assault. No women should have to endure this and yet we as society are not taking the necessary steps forward in trying to prevent this from happening. We sit back a keep letting a culture that perpetuates this issue thrive. I hope my poem at least sparks a thought and action in one of you to stand up against and try to prevent sexual violence.
