Anya Josephs and Alice Wilder, Activists from SPARK Movement, a girl-fueled activist movement to demand an end to the sexualization of women and girls in media, describe a current campaign that promotes policy to prevent sexual violence. As the rape case in Steubenville unfolded, activists from SPARK Movement initiated the #EducateCoaches campaign with a petition demanding that the “National Federation of High School Associations, which offers annual required trainings for coaches in order for them to remain accredited, to partner with nationally recognized activist organizations to develop a course on sexual violence prevention for high school coaches.”
