Information

OUSAP seeks to promote the education and awareness of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. We work to increase survivors’ access to support and resources. As a result, it is important to be aware of the information related to sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. 

 

There are many misconceptions about sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. As a result of these misconceptions, society has a tendency to take the responsibility off of the offender and place it on the survivor. This is dangerous for many reasons. It places blame on the victim, which tells offenders that society condones their actions and causes these crimes to go largely underreported. 

 

Sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking are common problems in our world, yet are largely misunderstood. It is important to decipher between the facts and the myths of these violent crimes.
