For this special edition of Posterzine, we’ve partnered with The Survivor’s Trust to shine a light on the issue of sexual violence and abuse. According to the charity, one in four women and one in six men in the UK will experience rape, sexual abuse, or sexual violence at some point in their life.
“We want to see a society where everyone understands the issues around rape and sexual abuse, and every survivor can easily access specialist sexual violence counselling and support locally, free of charge and for as long as it is needed,” says The Survivor’s Trust, which works as a membership agency for more than 120 specialist rape and sexual abuse organisations in the UK.
Here the charity tells us more about the impact of sexual violence and abuse — and what needs to change to stop it from happening.
Including beautiful imagery created by Elizabeth Ilsley, London-based artist, designer, model, and DJ. Inspired by old pornography and reappropriating the gaze, Elizabeth writes witty one-liners and gives the viewer a laugh in the gallery almost forgotten in contemporary times.
