Safety and acts of violence

If you are assaulted:

Go to a place of safety, call the police, and ask an emergency contact to come to your assistance.

Keep all evidence of the assault, do not wash your body (including intimate areas) and keep the clothes you were wearing at the time of the incident. If a condom was worn, keep this as well.

Try to find potential witnesses.

If you have been raped, you can seek emergency treatment (PEP) to prevent HIV, as well as emergency contraception to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

We advise you to consult a doctor about your injuries and obtain a medical certificate.

Contact Aspasie or another relevant organisation to support you through the process.

You are not in any way responsible for what has happened to you.
