A new briefing has been published that outlines the case for anonymity when instances of Image-Based Sexual Abuse have been reported.
1. It is in the interests of justice that victims of crime, including image-based sexual abuse, come forward to report incidents to the police and support prosecutions.
2. Image-based sexual abuse is a form of sexual offence because of the mode of perpetration, not the motive. The harm comes from the fact that it is sexual images that are shared without
consent; the images go viral because they are sexual. The abuse accompanying distribution of
images is sexualised.
