In praise of Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre
In the midst of all the comments and thoughts and responses whirling around my previous post, I noticed that someone stumbled across my blog through the search term “uk trans friendly rape crisis“.
And you know what, I have my problems with individuals within feminism, and I certainly have my problems with Rape Crisis in the UK, but I’d really rather be talking about how we can come together and fight for a beautiful feminist future.
So it is with this in mind that I’d like to dedicate this brief post to Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC). This place offers a brilliant service to the local community – as do most rape crisis centres, women’s shelters and other related services – and as part of that I know through individuals close to me that they have done sterling work to support deeply vulnerable trans women. Because most cis feminists aren’t out to get trans people: they’re our allies and we can rely on them.
Thank you CRASAC. You are the most awesome wonderful feminist heroes.
