Situation

A recent survey by Opinion Matters found that more women than men felt women should accept responsibility for sexual violence in certain circumstances, e.g. being drunk, dressing provocatively, flirting, dancing, going to a man’s house or accepting a drink and engaging in conversation. In a society where victims of this crime are blamed, perpetrators are protected and survivors are seldom believed it is more important than ever to challenge preconceived ideas regarding sexual violence.

Solution

BlueGiro is an engaging and entertaining way to examine the issue of sexual violence and the myths that surround it. In keeping with all Open Clasp productions BlueGiro is accessible, popular and relevant, with a strong sense of humour. At the same time will highlight the devastating impact of sexual violence, and expose the myths and attitudes that compound the experience.
