Sexual assault is defined by the Department of Justice as any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape”. It is a sensitive and unsettling issue, however it is a disturbing truth that should continue to be brought into the public eye and sought to be completely prevented. My current art project, titled “Expect to be Respected”, is a statue meant to embody the idea of respecting things we find beautiful, such as the human body. This piece shows the simplistic body form that we see when we look at a person, but if you look further you see beautiful flowers, which represent natural beauty and complexity. The flowers chosen also represent individual things, such as love, friendship, strength, etc.. Over the course of this project I will work to raise money for the nation’s largest sexual-violence prevention organization, RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network). This organization has inspired me to join the cause and fight for the complete prevention of these violent, and widely unpunished acts. As a 16 year old, I find it both frightening and disappointing that at my age I am 4 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than the general public. If you are a parent, grandparent, teen, or just a concerned person looking to help, I hope my work will inspire you to fight for justice and stand up for the end of sexual assault. Thank you for your donations!
