Dozens of Mohawk women turn to social media to open up about sexual assault

Sexual assault allegations shared anonymously via Twitter accounts set up in 2 communities


When Victoria Ransom took to social media earlier this week to share her experience with sexual assault, her intention was to encourage those in Akwesasne who have publicly accused someone to seek healing support.

The 30-year-old woman from the Mohawk community that straddles the Ontario, Quebec, and New York state borders was sexually assaulted in Grade 11 at a prom party, and shared what happened on Facebook.

"I wanted whoever was hurting to know that healing was just as important," said Ransom.
