How rape and sexual assault impact your career, according to survivors

How does rape or sexual assault affect your career and professional life? How do you progress in your work and earnings when you are a survivor of sexual violence?

“It was actually hard to just get a job,” says Winnie M Li. “It was hard to just go out there and sell yourself and say, “I’m a great, you know, I’m a great hard worker!”, because people will be like “Well, why haven’t you been working for the last two years?!” and you can’t actually say “I was raped in 2008”.

Winnie is just one of the seven people who feature in Life After Sexual Violence, a series which throws a spotlight on the reality of life after a sex attack.
