International News – Duchess of Cornwall – supporting survivors of rape and sexual abuse

5th Feb 2013

The Duchess of Cornwall hosted a reception in support of survivors of rape and sexual abuse at Clarence House.

The Duchess organised the reception to bring together political figures, rape support groups and rape survivors.

She spoke to those present of the importance of forming a united front to help victims of rape and sexual abuse and

the need to end the taboo surrounding rape and sexual abuse, adding “perhaps from this small beginning, we will be able to

build a future where society will simply not tolerate rape and sexual abuse any longer”

 

Survivors and others attending stated the Duchess’s contribution was positive,  and you could tell she felt very passionately about the issue.

She had shown a level of commitment to this area, and her high profile had helped make possible a meeting focused solely on this issue

by a  wide range of representatives from various UK groups.
