Generation You talks to Rape Crisis

It’s a simple phrase to remember: No means no. And it should never be more complicated than that.

Rape Crisis is an organisation that promotes the needs and rights of women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.

Research conducted by the Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) found that women who had used women-only services greatly valued this support and an independent poll of 1,000 women across the UK found that 97% of those interviewed thought that a female rape victim should have the choice of accessing a women-only support service.

A network of 44 organisations, and 56 centres, Rape Crisis offer a range of support, advocacy, counselling and information in ‘safe spaces’. They are providing an essential service for the too many women and girls who find themselves in situations of despair following sexual violence.


On Generation You, Chloe Combi and James Gilmore spoke to Rebecca from Rape Crisis about the services that they provide, and question them on some trends and cases in this area.

Hyer's Highlights: Neymar signs with PSG

PSG have paid a staggering £198m for Barcelona forward Neymar.

£198m for one player. It is more than double the current world record fee of £89m paid by United for Pogba and almost two and a half times that paid by Real Madrid for Ronaldo in 2009.


Neymar’s price is four times greater than Montserrat’s GDP, and his wages equate to over £40m annually, all funded by Qatari oil and their 2022 World Cup.

Surely football has lost the plot? But despite the controversial nature of the transfer, listener Rupert has told Benji Hyer that he does not begrudge the money that football is generating.

Lekhika Chaudhary on Gender Stereotypes

Tough new rules on gender stereotyping in advertising are being introduced to end outdated expectations of women cleaning and washing while men struggle to do basic domestic duties.


These stereotypes can be harmful and perpetuate negative stereotypes, especially for young people. The new standards will not stop all stereotyping but they will ban certain scenarios.

For example, a woman with sole responsibility for clearing up family mess, a man failing to do basic household chores, or an advert suggesting an activity is inappropriate for boys or girls because it is often associated with the other sex.


On her show, Lekhika Chaudhary asked her listeners about what they think the banning of gender stereotyping in advertisements will actually do – and whether they agree with the new policy. Listener Frankie agrees with the policy, but argues that it won't be as effective as some people want to think...
