Sexual assault survivor: perpetrators deserve all the blame

by Glen Canning

Mainstreet host Stephanie Domet talks with Sherri Bain of the group Safety For Our Sisters.

Sherri Bain is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. As a child she was molested by an uncle from the age five to 13.

Years later, Bain’s abuser was sentenced to 12 months in jail but only served four months.

Bain, 47, of Halifax started the Facebook group Safety for Our Sisters to address the issue of sexual violence against women in Nova Scotia.

“You should know the first time I ever heard someone say, ‘We believe you’ was two weeks ago at Avalon (Sexual Assault) Centre.

Sexual assault, Bain said, may only take moments “but the consequences are forever.”

This is a very touching interview.
