Sat 4/29, 12p: Do you fear being sexually assaulted? Have you –or somebody you know- been raped? As April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, on Women´s Focus -hosted by Cristina Baccin-, we´ll talk about how the life of a sexual assault victim is affected. Do you wonder if it is possible to overcome a sexual assault? Who are the most vulnerable? What are the best actions to reduce and ultimately, eliminate sexual assaults? What can we do as a community?
