Every 73 seconds, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted.
Even more astounding, one out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. Sexual assault is a centuries-old issue but in the past few years conversations around sexual assault have erupted in the media and behind closed doors.
But our question was, how do we actually begin shifting toward a zero tolerance culture?
Thus was born 98society. 98society is a social enterprise brand, dedicated to offering inspired apparel designed to educate society on the sexual assault epidemic. Each purchase supports preventive programs and survivor services.
98society plans to offer experiential events in an effort to ignite a zero tolerance culture, as well as a blog platform for survivors and allies alike to safely speak to and hold conversations around the spectrum of sexual assault.
Join us as we embark on a long journey, for we have barely begun to scratch the surface.
