How to Prevent Rape

I’ve talked a lot on this blog about the statistics involving women and violence.  What I haven’t really talked about is how to prevent it.

I read this really great article that shows that teaching men not to rape is fundamental to preventing rape.  It targets young males just going to college and teaches them about what it means to be raped, and what to do if you think something bad is happening.  You can read the details of the article here.

It’s time for people to stop putting the focus on what women should do to prevent violence against themselves and start focusing on the people who can really do something; the men who commit sexual crimes against women.  I would encourage you to reach out to your alma maters, current schools, etc to implement a class for guys to learn about violence against women.
