Une enfant victime d’agression sexuelle toutes les trois minutes : que contient « la campagne choc » lancée ce mardi par le gouvernement

Mieux détecter, améliorer les signalements mais aussi connaître l’ampleur du phénomène, au-delà des chiffres de la Ciivise, commission indépendante sur l’inceste et les violences sexuelles faites aux enfants : 160 000 victimes chaque année en France, un enfant victime d’inceste, de viol ou d’agression sexuelle toutes les trois minutes. C’est l’enjeu d’une campagne nationale annoncée ce mardi par Charlotte Caubanel, secrétaire d’Etat chargée de l’Enfance. 

« I cannot reword »

The goals of the initiative, outlined in June and now being implemented, are to improve detection, enhance reporting, and gain a better understanding of the extent of the phenomenon. This comes shortly after Emmanuelle Béart spoke out about the incest she endured from the age of 10 to 14, in the documentary « Un silence si bruyant, » which she co-directed with Anastasia Mikova. The documentary, featuring the testimonies of four incest survivors, will be aired on September 24th on M6.

« Il est essentiel que ce cri soit utilisé pour mobiliser tous les adultes. Environ un adulte sur dix a été victime d’inceste pendant son enfance », a réagi Charlotte Caubanel le 5 septembre sur Franceinfo, alors que l’actrice demandait une réponse politique et sociale au phénomène.

« I cannot reword »

Starting from September 15th, there will be a display campaign aimed at « raising awareness and appealing to people’s appetites ».

On Tuesday, September 12th, Charlotte Caubel and Olivier Veran, Government spokespersons, will visit the 119 to engage in discussions with the professionals involved.

According to the State Secretary, « the campaign will be launched from September 15th through animated displays and digital platforms, and then in cinemas starting from September 20th. It will be televised for the first time on September 21st, and then extensively aired from October 6th to November 2nd, 2023. On social media, it will feature thematic content created by experts and professionals in child protection. »

The campaign is launched as « Triste Tigre » becomes the highlight of this literary season: author Neige Simmo releases a novel with P.O.L that addresses the sexual violence she endured in her childhood, resulting in her incestuous stepfather being sentenced to nine years in prison.
