Sexual Violence Against Children and Adolescents Causes of the Year – 04/28/2022 – Folha Social +

In Brazil, four girls under the age of 13 are raped every hour. Most of the victims of this violence are boys between the ages of 4 and 6.

These are 2021 data from the Brazilian Public Security Forum’s Yearbook of Violence, which further shows that 67% of incidents occur indoors and 86% are caused by acquaintances of victims.

Fear and shame lead to impunity and lack of public policy to deal with the problem. “Silence is a deal with violence, it makes it invisible,” said Louisiana Temer, president of the Institute Libertar, which focuses on combating sexual violence against children and adolescents.

The theme is the first of its kind for a year, a social + platform channel, launched this Thursday (26), which also includes social entrepreneurs.

With the support of Instituto Liberta, a series of editorial products on sexual violence in childhood and adolescence will gain visibility on the multiplatform Sheet The next four months.

“Society doesn’t see the seriousness of the problem because it doesn’t see its level. It doesn’t see it because there’s not enough data, and there’s no data because there are no complaints,” said Louisiana Temer.

As part of a strategy to make the problem visible, a virtual march aims to mobilize one million people on May 18 to break the silence on sexual violence against children and adolescents.

The #AgoraVcSabe movement will use images and voices of adults across the country who recorded the video “I was a victim and now you know”.

“We are going to be the last generation to remain silent in the face of violence against children and adolescents,” said Libertar, president of the Liberals, who organized the National Day for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children and Adolescents.

“It’s not someone’s story, it’s about the collective power to take this problem out of invisibility,” he explained.

This is because the participants in the virtual march will not need to report what they have experienced and will appear once in the crowd. “People are invited to say three sentences. They don’t have to identify themselves, they don’t have to say their names, they don’t have to tell a story,” said Louisiana.

She puts herself in the first person when she reveals that she was raped at the age of 27 during a robbery. At the age of 13, she also experienced a situation of sexual violence that is not always seen when she saw a man masturbate when she saw his pass.

# AgoraVcSabe

The #AgoraVcSabe march was inspired by the #MeToo, #PrimeiroAssedio and #ChegadeFiuFiu movements, which revealed abuses based on public reports from victims. But it was also the answer to a stalemate that bothered the institute staff.

“How can I convince a large number of adults that they have left embarrassing places and become victims of violence?”, The lawyer said.

Virtual Rebellion seeks to show that violence is widespread at various social levels and that it is not just for those who have been victims of serious rape – violence that is considered subtle is also part of the list of abuses.

The site lists some types of violence and invites the public to reflect: Has an adult touched you or caressed your private parts? Did he deliberately show you his genitals? Did he masturbate in front of you? Did he give you any “rewards” for sex work? And did it excite you or does it cause you pain, shame, embarrassment or fear today?

The Virtual March is the first phase of the Liberta Institute’s requirements for combating sexual violence against children and adolescents.

“We believe in public policy. In this election year, we will communicate with managers about the presence of a plan to deal with violence in their government.”
