Do not take a shower. Do not put on any makeup. Do not cover any bruises you may have gotten during the rape. do not change clothes, wear the same clothes to the hospital you wore when the rape took place. If your clothes are torn so they reveal parts of your body you don't want any- one to see, wrap yourself up and take a change of clothes with you. Get a friend to drive you to the hospital if possible. It is im- portant to get to the hospital as soon as possible in order to get medical attention and to get as much evidence as possible against the person who raped you. If you get cleaned up before you go to the hospital, you may be washing away valuable evi- dence which can be later used in court to convict your rapist. Wanting to get cleaned up after a rape is natural. Most rape vic- tims feel a bath or shower will wash the filth of the rape away. However, getting cleaned up be- fore going to the hospital can do more harm than good, especially when evidence is washed down the drain. Once at the hospital, you'll be given a medical examination. The exam will check the areas which have been assaulted dur- ing the rape. The exam is also a way for doctors to collect legal evidence and to check for the possibility of venereal disease, pregnancy and AIDS. The exam is not meant to be embarrassing. It does not hurt but it may be uncomfortable. However, tl~" exam is the best way to make sure a rape victim gets proper medical care. Other types of sexual abuse needs to be reported as soon as possible. One reason sexual abuse is so easy to commit and get away with is because so many people fall to report it. Failing to report the abuse to the police simply lets the abuser off the hook. In some cases, it al- lows the abuse to continue. Re- porting the abuse to the police Is I WOLF CREEK GALLERY Christmas OPEN HOUSE Sunday November 18- Noon to Five p.O ~.%11~,\~V~.~,1t !'~:lO " Ili~ W.'Wz~hlngl,0n SI,.

Saturday 8 am to 5 pm a very hard thing to do. Our legal system does an incredibly poor job protecting victims of sexual abuse from the humili- ation of the abuse. In addition. our society does an equally poor job trying to understand the crime of sexual abuse. Our soci- ety often makes the victim of the abuse feel they are to blame for the abuse instead of the abuser. If you have been sexually abused, report it. The sooner the abuse is reported, the sooner the abused person can begin to put their life back together. After re- porting the abuse, apply as much pressure as possible to any agency which Is responsible for making sure justice is served. If the person who abused you does not go to Jail, don't give up. Keep track of your abuser. He may abuse again. When he's caugttt, come forward. If justice is still not carried out, work to get the people responsible for failing to put your abuser behind bars replaced,. If a friend or loved one comes to you and says they have been sexually abused, listen to what they have to say. After listening, believe them. People rarely make up stories about sexual abuse. Let your friend or loved one know you care. ~l~y to convince them they are not to blame for the abuse. Suggest to your friend or loved one it would be best if they reported the abuse to the police, their parents, or to a so- cial service agency. Make sure they get to a doctor as soon as possible. Most important, be there for that person, be a true friend. Do not pass judgment. Do not take matters into your own hands. You'll only be mak- ing a bad situation worse. Not only will your friend or loved one have to deal with the effects of their own abuse, they will now have to deal with the effects their abuse has on someone else. Sexual abuse is difficult for anyone to deal with. However, it's a difficult situation which can be dealt with successfully when people try to face the abuse instead of trying to run from it. You can't run from sex- ual abuse no matter how hard you try, The sooner you face it. the sooner this monster will go away.
