Guidance Note: Reporting Incidents of Sexual Violence in Humanitarian Workplaces – as a Survivor

“One of the questions frequently asked to Report the Abuse (RTA), and within the broader humanitarian community, is how we report and respond to incidents of sexual violence – as survivors. Who do we report to when something goes wrong? What are our options? What do we do if we are being sexually harassed? How do we prove something has happened? Where can we go for help?
