One Step at a Time

Sexual assault in Australia is vastly under-reported, under-investigated and under-convicted. 1 in 5 women and 1 in 20 men have experienced sexual violence since the age of 15 years (Australian Bureau of Statistics Personal Safety Survey, 2006), with an estimated 44,100 persons aged 18 years, being victims of at least one sexual assault (National Crime & Safety Surveys, 2005)

In response to this, South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault (SECASA), invites you to the launch of the film; One Step at a Time.

The film, being screened at Monash University, is a poignant and marvellous drama that follows a day in the life of ‘Jane’, a councillor/advocate, as she works with women who are attending a sexual assault centre and juggles her own home life.

Centres Against Sexual Assault (CASAs) respond to every victim and survivor with belief, respect, sensitivity and recognition of their struggle and ability to survive. CASAs provide a safe place for them to talk about their feelings in their own way and in their own time. Running for half an hour, the film features stories, drawn from interviews with clients and councillors, of sexual assault and the types of situations, struggles and stigma that can arise.

The launch will take place at 6.30 (for a 7pm screening) at Monash Medical Centre, 246 Clayton Road, Clayton in the Main Lecture Theatre.
Contact Emily or Gihan on 9928 8741 if you wish to attend.
