The amount of media coverage currently dedicated to sexual assault is unprecedented. And it is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it is beneficial: the news cycle, while triggering, feels like a tipping point in how we talk about sexual violence. Victims’ voices are being amplified, necessary conversations about harassment and abuse are happening, and allies are stepping up to own and reject their complicity in rape culture. However, this boom in coverage also has a dark downside: it offers fresh opportunities to perpetuate victim blaming on national platforms and in greater quantities than ever before.
