Sexual Assault Prevention Programs
How do sexual assault prevention programs bring awareness and prevent rape?
I believe that it's important for people to know the severity of sexual assault. People need to know that sexual assault is very common on college campuses, and can happen to anyone.
- 11.2% of all students experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation.
- 4.2% of students have experienced stalking since entering college.
- More than 50% of college sexual assaults occur in either August, September, October, or November.
- One in five college women report surviving rape or attempted rape at some point in their lifetime.
- One in fifty men have experienced rape
- More then 50% of survivors don't report because they 'believe' the event was is not "serious enough".
-70% of women sexually assaulted on a college campus knew the perpetrator.
-Compared to women who have not experienced it, those experiencing sexual assault are:
-3 time more likely to suffer from depression
-6 times more likely to suffer from PTSD
-13 times more likely to abuse alcohol
-26 times more likely to abuse drugs
Article: A Sexual Assault Primary Model with Diverse Urban Youth
Doctors Melissa and Brian Smother worked with a non-profit community mental health clinic in which a socioecological model of sexaul abuse prevention plan was developed. They planned to implement this model to a public school to track the results. Their goal was to promote and make change within individuals and the community by trying to decrease the tolerance to sexual violence and sexual harassment.
Article: The Men's Project: A Sexual Assault Prevention Program targeting college Men
This program includes social norms, empathy, and bystander education programs. Male students were recruited to participate in a 11 week program. The program introduces many issues like, gender socialization, male privilege and sexuality. The program was designed to prevent as much sexual assault, it targeted men because in most cases men are the attacker.
Book- "The problems of Rape"
The chapter I read mainly spoke about two major feminists thought on rape. The two feminist are Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin. They argue about power and the body, and how they are linked to rape. Rape, to them, oppresses women and it degrades a women’s status. They state that “rape is violence, not sex”. It also explains how the significance of embodiment is really important to women.
What are they?
They are educational outreach programs that address sexual responsibility and sexual assault, among other health and safety issues.
Different types of Programs:
- Not Anymore
- The Men's Program
The goal of of sexual violence prevention is simple- to stop it from happening in the first place. The solutions, however, are just as complex as the problem. Prevention efforts should ultimately decrease the number of individuals who perpetrate sexual violence and the number of individuals who are victims. Many prevention approaches aim to reduce risk factors and promote protective factors of sexual violence.
How can you, as a college advocate, prevent and help others dealing with sexual assault?
"American Rape Culture"
-One study found that students living in sorority houses (3 times at risk) and on-campus dormitories (1.4 times at risk) were more likely to be raped than students living off-campus.
-Women from colleges with medium and high binge-drinking rates had more than a 1.5-fold increased chance of being raped while intoxicated than those from schools with low binge-drinking rates.
-Eighteen percent experienced an attempted (13%) and/or completed (13%) sexual assault since entering college.
