Worst summer ever

Information om publikationen

"The worst summer ever" is a follow up of "The first weekend in June" telling what happens after a sexual assault.

Graphic short stories have proved an effective way to raise the questions of sexual assault and rape. In "The worst summer ever" the chaotic and confused reactions of a victim of sexual assault are described. It is important both for the victim and for the personnel taking care of the victim to be aware of these reactions.

In the first phase Sara tries to forget what she has been subjected to and pretends that everything is as usual. She is torn between her feelings, hesitating whether to report to the police or not. Finally, supported by a friend Sara goes to the healthcare service.

"The first weekend in June" and "The worst summer ever" are written and illustrated by Matilda Ruta for the National Centre for Knowledge on Men's Violence against Women.
