International Resources for Rape Support

Binders eds Sarah Crewe and Sophie Mayer, along with many Binders contributors (Jacqueline Saphra and Sarah Hesketh, for example) have been taking part in Binders’ contributor Michelle McGrane’s Against Rape online poetry protest. We’d particularly like to flag up this crucial international list of rape support resources for immediate access — but do have a read of the 8 days’ worth of fantastic, moving, bold and striking poetry curated by Michelle, and share widely.
