The Press Association: Ads target male sex attack victims
Real men Get Raped Too
When men get raped–or are victims of sexual assault–like women, only a fraction of men will report it. The image of a rugby ball with a nail through it and the words “Real Men Get Raped and Talking About It Takes Real Strength”, will appear during the Six Nations Rugby tournament on 140 escalator panels in Tube stations in central London. They decided to use a very alpha-male sport to bring attention to the fact that any man can be raped, even the most machismo. Government estimates in England also show that of the thousands of men affected by sexual assaults just 11% will report the incident.
