Useful international websites
If you don’t ordinarily reside in Australia, here are some resources from other countries which may be helpful if you have experienced image-based abuse.
Image-based abuse (also known as ‘revenge porn’) happens when someone shares or posts an intimate image or video of you without your consent.
