About Us

Take Back the News confronts the misrepresentation and underrepresentation of sexual assault in mainstream media with the goal of improving both the quantity and quality of media coverage of sexual assault. We provide outlets for rape survivors to publish their stories in their own words, through the Take Back The News web-site, www.takebackthenews.org, and through college and community print projects. We also encourage and train activist communities to respond to local media coverage of rape. Take Back The News seeks to raise public awareness about the epidemic of rape, in order to foster greater public dialogue and ultimately greater public responsibility. We most recently launched a Youth Project to educate high school students about sexual assault.
