Who this group is for: This is currently a group for women identified adults only. If you feel this descriptor does not include you, especially men identified adults please still reach out to us anyway. We hope to create a group around masculinity and sexual assault, as well as a non binary group in the near future. We intend for this to allow groups to explore among peers; how their experience of gender is affected by and affects their experience of sexual assault.
