Sammy Woodhouse Waves Her Anonymity For The Second Time

Rape and grooming survivor and speaker Sammy Woodhouse made The Times front page news two days in a row.

The lead article generated massive attention after it detailed the fact that Rotherham Council had contacted her rapist.  They wanted him to know he was entitled to parental rights to the child he conceived as a result of him raping Sammy.

Sammy released a video to tell everyone she was the person the Times was writing about.  The next day the paper ran another front-page story featuring Sammy.

She also appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were hugely supportive in their TV interview. Piers went as far as to refuse to read out one of the statements from the council.

Then Sammy headed to the House of Commons

Louise Haigh MP, who is an ardent supporter of Sammy and her campaigns,  invited her to the House of Commons.  Once there Speaker John Bercow warmly welcomed Sammy to the chamber’s public gallery. The Prime Minister also commended Sammy for her bravery and fortitude.

Back in August 2013 Sammy waivered her anonymity for the first time. She had found the strength and courage to release all her information for an article in the Times by journalist Andrew Norfolk.  Originally and under the pseudonym Jessica, she had named her groomer and rapist Hussain.  The article triggered the Alexis Jay report.  The report discovered over 1400 children had been abused and failed in Rotherham.

Sammy is campaigning to stop any rapist from having any access rights or control of any child born out of the rape of their mother. She is adamant she will see the law changed sooner rather later. She is also passionate about a number of other issues which effect children and women.

Many clients book Sammy to speak and deliver training courses and workshops.  Her main clients are schools and colleges, large corporations, Police Forces, Councils and organisations.

As Sammy says, “ They are supposed to protect children from their mother’s rapists, not give them contact.”
