Abstract—Nowadays, sexual violence is the highest case of woman’s violence in the world with 150 million cases in each year. Sexual violence toward woman is going to create a terrible effect, not only for victim’s health but also for their psychological condition. But it’s really contradictive when known that in Indonesia, most of suspected are jailed in 10 years or less only, therefore Indonesia’s law never capable to decrease the number of sexual violence. Handling and healing psychological trauma as a result of sexual abuse should get serious attention from any related parties, such as family, society and country. So that’s why, in order to cure and rebuild the mentality of sexual violence’s victim from trauma, authors proposes a program named EMPOWER (Empowerment and Protection of Women Right). This community is open for every woman in Indonesia who wants to share their problem with others as healer for them and learning for others. In further prospect, this program can be enjoyed by every woman in global scale.

Index Terms—Women, sexual violence, trauma, empower.
