Prevent or Defend

In this film an expert gives straight forward advice regarding how to minimise your chances of becoming a victim of rape.

Safety on the Streets

TrueTube investigates the nature of violent sexual crimes on UK streets, dispelling myths about rape and finding out what we need to do to make sure sexual inequality doesn't get in the way of our fight against sexual assault.

Mum's In Prison

A mother of six and convicted heroin dealer talks about the effect her prison sentences had on her family. She says her own choices led to her ending up where she did, despite the fact her father was also a criminal. Teenage pregnancy, domestic violence and drug abuse - is she the only one to blame?

Rape: Human Nature

Is rape instinctive to humans? To what extent can we blame rape on our genetic make-up, or our general human nature? Is it about a need for power or control, or is it a product of evolution that allows men to spread their seed? This film offers a variety of perspectives on this controversial topic.

Down But Not Out

The story of a young girl's experience of domestic violence and how it went on to affect her life. She talks positively of her new career path and new relationship despite her previous circumstances.

Stand Up To Domestic Violence

TrueTube takes to the street to share statistics on domestic violence and to hear the general public's response. People are shocked by the surprising figures, which show 20% of men admitting to some form of domestic violence.

Afterwards

A film explaining what Rape Crisis Centres can do for people after they've been raped.

#ShoutingBack

Laura Bates began the Everyday Sexism Project to highlight how often sexist behaviour and even sexual assaults go unchallenged and unreported. In this film women tell their distressing stories of everyday sexism, and invite us all to help make it stop by shouting back.
