36% of women who experienced sexual violence felt too "embarrassed or ashamed" to tell someone.

The CSO today released findings on "disclosure of experiences" as part of its 2022 Sexual Violence Survey.

22% of women who experienced sexual violence said they didn't share their experience because they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

This compares to 14% of men.

"Sexual violence is not trivial, it is one of those things that can be very harmful," the CEO said.

Noeline Blackwell has reminded victims, "There are services and ways of talking about it confidentially."
