DRAW THE LINE

Engaging Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence.

Your sister tells you her husband made her have sex last night.

Do you change the subject?

Why Draw the Line

When we look away from sexual violence we make it easier for the perpetrator to continue – and the violence.

When to Draw the Line

Sex with anyone against their will is against the law. Period.

How to Draw the Line

There's always more than one option for a bystander. Take a stand safely and do something that you feel comfortable with. You could:

  • Support her. Listen to her story.
  • Believe her. Validate her feelings.
  • Find help for her. Offer community resources and services.
