This month we've posted a daily image to share information and debunk myths around sexual violence, to raise vital awareness and have a conversation 🔵 Now as we head into March, let's keep it going! Let us know what else you think we should all be talking about and how we can all be making a difference! #WhatICanDo You can get your pin at Hestia.org/UKSAYSNOMORE ----------------------------------------------------------- #28daysofawareness #timesup #NOMORE #sexualviolence #sexualharassment
Part of being Gelli’s mom means I get to meet some pretty cool Mommas who come from all walks of life. Some of these Mommas are also blessed with the gift of an extra chromosome. @akiko.guevara wrote a guest post for me this month in honor of #downsyndromeawareness . Visit www.mommanmanila.com to hear some of the wonderful gifts Sachiko has brought to their family. • • • • #February #28daysofawareness #downsyndromelove #specialneeds #mommaonamission #mom #momlife #momma #baby #cutie #kid #changingthefaceofbeauty
Louder for the people at the back! Clothing, alcohol, previous sexual relationships...there is nothing that causes rape other than rapists! #uksaysnomore #itsnotok #nomore #sexualassault #metoo #timesup #gallery #28DaysOfAwareness
That’s one in every two women you know. That’s why this is all of our problem. That’s why we’ve all got to Take a Stand - together. #NoMore #28DaysOfAwareness #harassment #sexualharassment #BBC #UKSAYSNOMORE #Itsnotok #timesup #metoo
This is a common and extremely harmful myth. It’s important to note that men and boys can become aroused by sexual stimulation even if they do not want to be. Many survivors of sexual violence feel guilt and shame because of this & that’s why it’s important for us to break stigma and rectify misconceptions. #malevictims #sexualassault #sexualviolence #28daysofawareness #metoo #timesup #itsnotok #UKSAYSNOMORE #nomore
Thank you to @terrycrews for being a continuous light and voice for survivors of sexual violence - your courage is inspiring. Photo: Gage Skidmore. #28daysofawareness #uksaysnomore #itsnotok #timesup #metoo #malevictims #TerryCrews #sexualviolence #nomore
#Stealthing is not a trend - it’s sexual assault, and it’s a crime. #28DaysOfAwareness #UKSAYSNOMORE #NOMORE #MeToo #TimesUp #sexualassault #sexualviolence #itsnotok
This is SO true. If we’re to tackle the whole problem of #SexualViolence , we must look at the whole picture. LGBTQ+ and BME communities may experience certain barriers in seeking help that others will not - and these barriers must be examined and broken down. #LGBTQ #BME #intersectionality #28DaysOfAwareness #UKSAYSNOMORE #MeToo #TimesUp #Itsnotok #NOMORE
I wrote a blog post for @mommanmanila. A controversial topic. 💜 Link in bio. Please read and share. 💙💛 Every year, during Down Syndrome Consciousness Month, I ask friends, therapists, and educators to share a little bit about Down Syndrome, the things they have learned, and how an extra chromosome has affected their lives. I do this because I know that somehow, we are all connected by our stories, and that having the ability to relate to someone else who may be going through something you are, somehow makes our own journey a little lighter. For this post, I have asked Krista Rowland-Collins to share about something near and dear to both of our hearts. I have heard horror birth stories. I have experienced things I choose not to write about yet, because I cannot write about them in a positive way, (as of today) but in this guest M.O.M. (Momma on a Mission) post, Krista shares an upsetting incident that she had the opportunity to turn around. Thank you Krista for the work that you do. You make the world a better place. I have high hopes that one day, Adele and Gelli will meet, and their mommas will too. #downsyndromeawareness #321 #theluckyfew #28daysofawareness
510,000 too many. These shocking numbers only amplify the level of work that still has to be done to end sexual violence - and it’s a task that has to be taken on together. #MeToo #TogetherWeCan #TimesUp #sexualviolence #sexualassault #itsnotok #NOMORE #UKSAYSNOMORE #WhatICanDo #28DaysOfAwareness
NO MORE normalising sexual violence. NO MORE trivialising sexual violence. We owe it to ourselves to do better at confronting those who persist in keeping rape culture alive. #EducationIsKey #NOMORE #28DaysOfAwareness #TimesUp #MeToo #sexualssault #rapeculture #UKSAYSNOMORE #itsnotok
Being coerced, bullied, scared, shocked or threatened into saying “yes” does NOT equal consent. #consent #healthyrelationships #sexualconsent #MeToo #TimesUp #itsnotok #sexualassault #UKSAYSNOMORE #NOMORE #28DaysOfAwareness #iwillspeakup ・・・ #Repost @uksaysnomore with @get_repost

Recent figures released by #ONS show that women with a long-term illness or disability are more likely to be sexually assaulted than those without. #uksaysnomore #itsnotok #nomore #timesup #metoo #sexualassault #28daysofawareness
MYTHBUSTER: Approximately 72,000 men become victims of sexual assault every year in England & Wales alone (Crime Survey 2014). Yet, because society is still hesitant to believe that this affects men too, only 1 in 10 men decide to report it. This has to change! #UKSAYSNOMORE #28DaysOfAwareness #NOMORE #sexualassault #men #malevictims #staybrave #MeToo #TimesUp #itsnotok
Victim-blaming is born out of a society that is ignorant to the severity and frequency of sexual assault. We know our truth, so let’s make our voices heard. #NOMORE #UKSAYSNOMORE #WinnieMLi #TimesUp #MeToo #WhatICanDo #sexualassault #victimblaming #darkchapter #28daysofawareness
Still in awe of Kesha’s bravery and defiance during such a tough and traumatising situation. Remember - don’t let anyone steal your happiness! ✨ @iiswhoiis #Kesha #Grammys #Praying #NOMORE #UKSAYSNOMORE #TogetherWeCan #Rainbow #MeToo #TimesUp #28DaysOfAwareness
Just because someone consented to sleeping with you before, does NOT mean they automatically want to again. Coercing someone into saying yes does not count as consent. #MythBuster #28DaysOfAwareness #itsnotok #NOMORE #UKSAYSNOMORE #WhatICanDo #TimesUp #MeToo
#domesticviolence & #sexualassault are everyone’s problem, and we all have a responsibility to help end them. Add your photo to the #UKSAYSNOMORE Gallery today & stand in solidarity with survivors - link in bio! #itsnotok #NOMORE #MeToo #TIMESUP #WhatICanDo #28daysofawareness
#28DaysOfAwareness - new report released by the Office for National Statistics indicates that stalking & harassment offences have more than doubled in the past two years. This may be due to more awareness & therefore more reporting, new recognition of certain behaviours as harassment & improved recording of these offences. #harassment #stalking #ONS #NOMORE #UKSAYSNOMORE #itsnotok #MeToo #TimesUp #WhatICanDo
Myth-buster: society still holds the perception that rape is something that happens at random, at night. This is NOT the case. Roughly 90% of victims know their perpetrator prior to the assault. #NOMORE #itsnotok #MeToo #TimesUp #28DaysOfAwareness #sexualassault #myths
We’re saying NO MORE to #FGM . Female Genital Mutilation involves the intentional altering of female genital organs for non-medical reason. This procedure is incredibly painful and damaging, and illegal in the UK. #NOMORE #FGM #sexualabuse #itsnotok #WhatICanDo #28DaysOfAwareness #EndFGM

A truly shocking statistic, especially considering the actual number is much higher - with only 1 in 3 children disclosing sexual abuse to an adult. #NOMORE #sexualabuse #sexualassault #UKSAYSNOMORE #NSPCC #TimesUp #MeToo #WhatICanDo #28DaysofAwareness
One of the most common, and truly incorrect myths is that what someone is wearing has an impact on their likelihood of being sexual assaulted. Sexual assault is about power and control, NOT clothing. #NOMORE #myths #misconceptions #28DaysofAwareness #UKSAYSNOMORE #WhatICanDo #TimesUp #MeToo

Repost from @mommanmanila using @RepostRegramApp - Saw this today during some #girltime with @soaperstarmama @coconailstudio. How apropos since my #28DaysofAwareness post is about #faith today. Gelli reminds me often, just how much faith I need in my daily life. From little things to BIG, restoring and strengthening faith is a gift that keeps on giving in my journey as her momma.

Day 1 Breathe #28daysofawareness Breathing and clouds - it's the same thing isn't it? The element of AIR. I did yoga today under one of my living room skylights and the clouds zooming past (it is Scotland after all!) made me feel I was breathing in the air from above. Magically energising! #scotlandfromawindow #clouds #cloudchaser #mindfulness #mindfulnessmoment
I wasn’t used to asking myself how I feel. All I recognized was pain and that I wanted to make it stop. I didn’t put the connection to the cause, because I wasn’t connected to myself. Checking in with my body helped build self-awareness and was pretty revolutionary. Want to commit to doing this?

"So let Hope rise and darkness tremble in Your holy light. That every eye will see Jesus our God, Great and Mighty to be praised!" This month is about raising awareness for MS, but what if instead we raised Hope. What if we instead went out and shared how strong we are because of our God! And how MS will never stop us because we have a God to Hope in! Today at church I heard the song above and just prayed that this month that I would be a light of Hope to all those fighting MS and that together as a community we can share Gods love through our walks with MS! There's a lot of darkness in MS and it's our jobs to bring love and light into MS! So let's make Hope rise! Let March be a month of Hope! #ms #28daysofawareness #hope #pinms #inhonorofmamaolive #msfighters #mswarriors #god #foreverhopeful #mssociety #endlesspursuit
