With Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein being accused of sexual abuse, a local advocate is glad that these issues are being addressed.

Ann Marie Dewhurst, a local therapist, says its important to vocalize the problem. “People have an incredible capacity to grow and heal once they have acknowledge the problem.  So with all this media stuff coming out, what I’m really excited about is the the problem is getting named.”

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton says there is no single type of adult male that is a perpetrator that they cross socio-economic, education and gender lines.
