Justice for victims needs to lead any solution to the problems of harassment, assault, and other crimes. Too often the focus of any crime is put on the part of the perpetrator. One need only look to the way that serial killers such as Ted Bundy or the Night Stalker become celebrities. Their victims however, are often forgotten. Many people may have heard of the assault cases involving Bill Cosby or Roman Polanski, but few could name even a single one of their victims. Making victims feel safe should be the number one priority. Additionally, doing work on the policy and legislation level—or even through the media if traditional channels fail—are all part of giving survivors the justice that they deserve.
