I would like to add to the Declaration of Sentiments that victims of violence are adequately protected and assisted after the fact and the perpetrators are prosecuted to the fullest. No more untouched rape kits, biased judges, questions of “what were you wearing?”. I demand that not only women, but anyone who is subjected to violence be treated as a survivor and absolutely never blamed in the least for what has happened to them. There is no need to pity them but to make sure that they are given the support they need and deserve. Perpetrators must be punished, or at least adequately prosecuted. Ideally there would be no more violence and the fact that it would be ridiculous for me to demand that says something awful in itself. That needs to change.
