About Em

 

Em is a place for young women to have a voice; to find ways to be stronger & more confident in managing stressful situations of all kinds; to recognise sexual harm; and, to learn to support one another.

 

Em has three main goals:

1.

To EMPOWER young people by teaching positive ways to cope with stress and adversity, to be resilient every day.  

2.

To provide and nurture EMPATHY, through sharing stories of young, inspiring women overcoming tough times and achieving
amazing things.

3.

To help young people EMBRACE and build the community to support its young women – particularly through educating about sexual abuse, how common it is, and what services are around to help.


The Manifesto

 
 

What does it all mean?

 

Being a young woman is often confusing, as we get sent mixed messages All. The. Time. This causes us trouble in a number of ways, but particularly, with regard to sexual experiences. 

 

 

Scope of the problem

1 out of 3 girls may be sexually abused before she turns 16.
Most of this abuse (90%) will be done by someone she knows.

This is not okay.
So we’re doing something to help support our young women, through Em.

Women who seek counselling are better equipped to heal, and are less likely to suffer from physical and mental health problems.
