Earlier this week, the emergence of numerous sexual assault and harassment allegations prompted the publicly-funded Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to fire popular Q radio show host Jian Ghomeshi — prompting a firestorm of controversy and an unfortunate defense of his so-called BDSM sex. 

 As Al Jazeera reported, two of the women publicly came forward, sharing disturbing accounts of being beaten, choked or slapped without consent, and being sexually harassed in the workplace. One such woman, Canadian actress Lucy DeCoutere, endured intense shaming for going on the record, as is usually the case for many women and others who speak up about enduring sexual violence and assault.

Unfortunately it’s that very real threat of stigma that prevents many sexual violence survivors from speaking up about what happened to them.
