Depending on where you live, it can be really difficult to get a rape kit
Sexual assault forensic examiners, commonly nurses known as sexual assault nurse examiners are specially trained to perform post-assault exams and carefully gather evidence from a victim’s body. Unfortunately, they are not found in every hospital across the country. After hearing stories of women having to travel long distances to receive the exam that’s guaranteed to them under the Violence Against Women Act, so we began to file the same request with the health department in all 50 states asking for locations where a SAFE is available on staff or on-call.
