Sexual violence is a complex topic for journalists to cover and can be even more difficult for the general public to understand. At the nexus of trauma, violence, crime and public health, news coverage on sexual assault and rape often lacks the depth of context connecting specific events with broader social patterns. Responsible and high-impact reporting uses statistics, stories and background to enhance public understanding of how sexual violence impacts individuals, families and communities. Excellence in coverage of sexual violence highlights the spectrum of sexual violence and range of people affected. Most importantly, effective reporting on sexual violence conveys the scope of the problem while also identifying solutions and challenging the notion that these acts are inevitable.
