She said: “I can imagine what happened in the corridor, his hand choked me on my neck.” “Then he put his hand on my pants…it was painful. I told him to stop.”
Moon said that the five-hour attack took place outside the school in a secluded cottage on the south coast of England. The cottage was Benenden, a friend of the elite girls’ boarding school she attended on the weekend. Rented. She was only 15 years old at that time.
Boys from two boys’ schools with which the girl often interacts-Eton and Tonbridge-were also present and saw her repeatedly fighting the invaders. She said, but no one interfered.
“We are privileged children. Although we have spent a lot of money on math and lacrosse courses, we have not spent a cent in these schools to teach students about their right to be protected from such behavior. It̵
She added: “It’s important that we talk about this because in some cases these people will continue to be in charge of this country.”
Eaton has educated many British prime ministers, including the current Boris Johnson, Prince William and Prince Harry. He told CNN via email that it did hold a seminar on healthy relationships and gave consent to students. It said that it always takes specific allegations very seriously, supports the affected people and works with the police and children’s services when appropriate.
Eaton said in a statement: “Maintaining the welfare of young people is our top priority.” “All those involved in education have a responsibility to realize that we can and must do more to achieve meaningful results. , Continuous change, so as to benefit all young people.”
The school did not resolve CNN’s specific issues regarding Zan Moon’s allegations.
Like more and more young women in the UK, Moon talks about his own experiences-and consults others’ memories-to smash the stigma of discussing “rape culture”, which they say is prevalent in schools.
An angry chorus broke out, drowning the deafening silence that had previously enveloped the issue of sexual violence among school children.
After compiling a 15-page dossier concerning suspected incidents in multiple agencies, Moon sent a letter to Eaton, Tonbridge and others in charge, sending them a notice about “chauvinism.” Said that “they are deeply rooted in private boys’ schools in the UK.” She wrote: “It’s over now.”
Tonbridge principal James Priory expressed “serious concern” after reading Moon’s letter, saying in a statement that such behavior has no place in his school . Tonbridge also said in a statement that it gave consent to students and, if necessary, relayed the incident to the authorities.
“‘We will carefully listen to the opinions of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as anyone who directly contacts us from outside the school, to establish more things we can do to ensure that sexual harassment and abuse are not accepted, and to ensure If everyone wants to, they will feel supported and able to come forward.”
Moon’s letter followed the “everyone is invited” initiative. The website has collected more than 13,000 testimonials detailing the rape culture of school students and students in British schools.
These include allegations that children under the age of 10 have been catsed, 12-year-olds have been sexually abused, and disturbing allegations of rape-all well below the legal age of consent of 16 in the UK. The testimony also included allegations of incidents in public schools and universities, highlighting the widespread nature of harassment and violence against women in the UK. Recently, Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old Londoner, was killed and walked home from a friend’s house.
Everyone’s invited founder Soma Sala said: “This is much wider than naming the school. Soma Sala is a Londoner and was a student at Wycombe Abbey Girls’ School.” “In our entire society. There is a culture that can accept sexual assault and harassment. This culture can calm and regulate the worst behaviors and create an environment in which sexual violence can exist and thrive.”
Commit to provide new service hotlines and actions
“We subsequently received many reports of specific crimes.
In addition, where schools have been named on the site, officials are contacting these schools and providing professional support for any possible victims of sexual assault. “The Metropolitan Police wrote in a press release.
The person in charge of rape and sexual crimes at The Met said: “We understand the complicated reasons why many victim survivors have not contacted law enforcement agencies, but I personally want to assure anyone who needs our help that we are definitely here to serve you. “Sergeant Mel Laremore (Mel Laremore).
Posts shared on such platforms are anonymous, and unless they are specific, it is difficult to investigate the statement.
“The recent allegations shocked and shocked us. The Highgate they described completely violated the values of our entire community… We are really sorry.”
King’s College School in Wimbledon, southwest London, also commissioned an independent review and stated that it will not accept any form of abuse or discrimination.
It said: “The school has established a system to process and provide support for disclosures made by past or current students, and we urge anyone affected by these issues to raise them.”
Since then, the Everyone’s Invited website has stopped posting school names and testimonies, but the debate continues. Although hundreds of schools have been named on the site, some current and former students (such as Moon) have written an open letter to the principal detailing their misogyny, abuse and sexual violence experiences.
A letter written by former Dulwich University student Samuel Schulenburg (Samuel Schulenburg) accused the boys’ school in South London of being a “hotbed of sexual predators”. This letter was written to his former principal in order to raise awareness of Dulwich’s problems and introduced in detail the sexual violence and sexual violence and issues raised by girls at Dulwich’s sister school, James Allen Girls’ School (JAGS). An anonymous story of sexual harassment.
In response to the open letter and anonymous allegations, Dulwich University President Joe Spence said in a statement: “The behavior described is painful and totally unacceptable; we unreservedly condemn this behavior.”
Spence added: “Although we cannot comment on the anonymous testimony, any specific and evidence-based allegations will be resolved and we will invite external authorities to intervene where appropriate.” “As a boys’ school, what we do The first thing is to listen to women and girls tell us about their experiences and concerns, but as educators of boys, we also play a special role in playing a role.”
The victim was asked to relocate the school
Bralesford said: “Every time we attend a series of meetings about healthy relationships, we attract young people to come forward and tell us about their experiences.” She added that the school recommends “requiring disclosure requirements”. It is “too common” for girls” to leave school, even if they are not sexually assaulted girls.
Women’s rights activists say it’s no surprise that the rate of prosecution of sexual violence in this country is much lower than in the past few years.
Moon said: “I didn’t realize until recently that most of the sexual relationships I had when I was young were not what I agreed with.”
Moon said: “The entire top private school system was established to protect the future of boys and the reputation of the school. This is a top priority.” “What happens to girls does not matter to them.”
