Personal Rape Survivor Websites
The survivor community exists largely online in the form of personal sites and support message boards.
"I hope that somehow, at
sometime, someone else finds a piece of their own strength and determination,
and sees in the mirror their own beautiful reflection.”
A rape and sexual abuse survivors site. This site was created by one of the founders of the message board pandora's aquarium.
"In Greek Mythology, Persephone is the goddess of spring. According to her story, she was abducted, raped and taken to the underworld by Hades, the lord of the underworld. When her mother, Demeter, found out what had happened to Persephone, she convinced Zeus to force Hades to release her. Before Persephone could leave, Hades made her eat a pomegranate, which meant that she would have to return to the underworld for one-third of the year. According to the legend, the time Persephone spends in the underworld is the time in which there is winter on the earth. Because Persephone made it out of the underworld, she can be called the first rape survivor. As rape survivors we can take comfort from the knowledge that although winter is hard, there is always spring around the corner."
A site for survivors of partner abuse.
An upbeat site for survivors of sexual assault. This is a site for female and male survivors of sexual violence, including rape, attempted rape, sexual abuse and incest as well as the people who support them. In these pages, you will find my story and the stories of other rape and sexual assault survivors who have chosen to share theirs, as well as information, including pages on healing, medical and legal information for rape and sexual assault survivors, and sections for child sexual abuse and male survivors.
