#dotJane means Defender of Truth, Justice & Fairness: Protector of the Innocent
what we offer
Innocents suffer greatly from the events just prior to a sexual assault and the assault itself. These events are also blamed for everything but this is wrong because they do not cause all of the pathological problems. We know that Innocents are affected by much more than that and that it is what actually happens next after the assault that is so important. There can be many more people involved and these usually add stress and further humiliation to them.
We talk to victims and find most of them found it very difficult to talk to anyone. We know what these are and part of our work is to remove social prejudices and correct acceptance of UNTRUTHS such as myths and misunderstanding and teach people how to react when someone tells you about their horrible experience. One of the best responses is to say nothing and enclose them with a gentle hug and then say are you alright?. It is not the time to say You shouldn’t have gone out, or why did you do this or that, or any one of hundreds of reasons. Even the police find themselves with a one sided story and in seeking statements may appear to be rude and insensitive. (In some countries they actually are rude and insensitive) Then there is the need to see a doctor. They are trained to make sure your body is OK but not that good in understanding your mind (but we are going to teach them also). Also those who are unable or unwilling to tell anyone suffer silently for the rest of their sad lives and we are making it easy for them to tell us without us knowing who they are. This does help.
The good news is that our work is constantly being upgraded. We are still helping people as before but we are now focusing a lot more on education. If everyone knows what we know changes will be made to laws, justice, fairness and support. Already changes are happening. Governments are revising old laws, lawyers are petitioning governments to make more changes, Silent innocents are reaching out so it is essential that everyone takes their hand.
