About The Carnival

I found so many interesting posts related to the fight against sexual violence in the blogosphere that I created the Carnival Against Sexual Violence in late May, 2006. Links to past editions are located in the sidebar.

The 97th edition is now up at Abyss2hope

The carnival comes out on the 1st and 15th of each month unless otherwise noted.

As a rape survivor who felt completely alone for many years before finally speaking out about what I went through, I wanted to provide a way for survivors and others who care about this problem to collect our stories and our thoughts. Together we can help those who can't speak about their ordeal to discover they aren't alone and they aren't without hope. We can also raise awareness about attitudes and practices that contribute to the number of assaults that occur every day.

Since this isn't a problem only for women and girls, posts by men are welcome.

The carnival is open to personal stories, creative expression (poetry, art, etc.), legal issues, media watch, raising awareness, solutions and more. You can now add this carnival to your carnival favorites.
