Former Law & Order star Angie Harmon has become a board member at a Rape Treatment Centre in California to speak out against sex crimes and help victims.

The actress has joined the clinic at the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center in a bid to use her fame to raise awareness of anti-rape campaigns across America and help raise funds.

Harmon insists her decision to join the movement to help eradicate sexually-motivated attacks as she fears for the safety of her two young daughters with husband Jason Sehorn, Finley, four, and Avery, two.

She says, "The act of rape is barbaric. that it's still going on is appalling. It's still so prevalent, and I have two daughters. To have the centre go nationwide would be my ultimate dream."

"Awareness is part of the battle." (LR/WNWCUW/TN)
