April – Sexual Assault Awareness Month
For most of us April is a simple month. For some it's a beautiful month, for others spring's first day is known as a fool's day, but only few know that April is also a sexual violence awareness month. Different people from different countries and organizations are organizing various events for spreading information about sexual violence and for raising awareness.
During the march "Get back our night" in 1976 women came out and walked along the streets, which were not available for them, in places where it was more likely to become a victim of sexual violence. Later on that march became the basis of April activities. In 1980 sexual violence awarness was elected to be held in April and in 1990 April became sexual awareness month. In 2000 turquoise ribbon was chosen as a symbol of sexual violence awareness. So, April gives the opportunity to speak up the problem of sexual violence and to help those who became the victim of sexual violence.
