- New York City 04/25/2014 (WBAI)
On the steps of City Hall this week, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer led a rally to raise awareness about Sexual Violence.
“It’s not just women who are victims. 1 in 71 men report being raped at some point in their lives, so just like women men face a terrible stigma.”
The occasion -- Denim Day. The theme this year -- Empowering Men to Speak Out Against Sexual Violence.
As WBAI's Linda Perry reports, participants at the rally say attitude shifts and systemic changes are needed.
51 community partners joined the Denim Day rally including non-profits, city agencies and colleges and youth groups. City Hall, April 23, 2014
