Jane Doe Girl Talk

The average age a child is sexually abused is 9 years old. Switch focus to college campuses and 1 in 5 girls will be sexually abused while attending college.This makes teenage girls one of the most vulnerable populations for experiencing post-traumatic symptoms and being at risk of future abuse. When addressed early, children can heal from past abuse and prevent future abuse through education, awareness, and action.

Jane Doe Girl Talk is an interactive workshop for groups of high school girls about sexual violence issues specific to their age group. A lawyer who specializes in working with survivors of sexual abuse talks girls through real-life scenarios, candidly answers questions about sexual abuse and the law, and opens up a dialogue for girls to feel comfortable learning the facts. Participants leave the workshops with a plan of action for what to do if they or someone they know is sexually abused.
