We need to examine the kind of womanhood our industry promotes and sells to the world.The Justice and Equality Fund cites The Office for National Statistics which just this month found that 20% of women and 4% of men in England and Wales have experienced some type of sexual assault since the age of 16, equivalent to 3.4 million female victims and 631,000 male victims.
