What Can You Do To Stop Rape?

Here are a Few Ideas:

"Yet, why not tell what happened?" --Robert Lowell, poet
  • Confront men who use sexist language or make jokes degrading to women.
  • Challenge institutions that profit from sexist advertising that degrades women.
  • Be aware of your own behavior or attitude which may be threatening to women.
  • Do not confuse mere friendliness with sexual invitation.
  • Become familiar with the history of women's oppression, so that you can challenge sexist beliefs about rape & violence.
  • Be willing to examine your male ego defensiveness when listening to the expression of feminist ideas.
  • Be alert to signs of women (or men) who may be suffering physical or verbal assault, and be willing to investigate and intervene.
