My Dignity – My body is mine
My Dignity is an information and reflection resource.
My Dignity is for anyone who may be or has experienced sexualised violence and for anyone who may be responding.
Wherever it is difficult to tell someone about domestic and family violence, it may be even more difficult to tell someone about sexualised violence. The intent of My Dignity is to provide information, support reflection, share lived experience insight from others, and signpost to contacts and supports.
Whether a person tells someone now, later or ever, it is their right to have access to information and resources that support how they make sense of the violence and abuse used against them.

Who is this resource for?
My Dignity is for any person in any community or organisation who at some point may be making sense of the violence and abuse used against them. My Dignity is also for any person listening to and responding to their friends, family members, colleagues, peers or to the people who use their service, who are experiencing sexualised violence in the context of domestic and family violence (DFV).
National, state and territory definitions of domestic and family violence and criminal codes vary, however violence and abuse is never acceptable in any community, family, institution, place or context.
