Date Rape
Causes, Effects, and Speak
What happens to Melinda
at the end-of-summer party?
Whose fault is it?
Why?
Rape is NEVER the fault of the victim.
1. Rape is about power: the weak-minded
trying to take something from someone else.
3. The emotional damage lasts forever.
4. Even if the victim is drunk, even if the
victim is dressed in a provocative, sexy way,
it is still NEVER the victim's fault.
2. Raping someone is violating them in the
worst, most personal way you can.
5. All people have the right to their own bodies,
their own sexuality, and their own feelings.
6. Even if the person says "no" quietly, or
uncertainly-- NO MEANS NO.
According to the FBI, only
3-10% of rape cases are reported.
Why?
Victims often know their
attacker (between 50-75% of the time)
and don't want to "create trouble" for that
person.
Victims are afraid
no one will believe them.
Victims are unsure if the
unwanted sexual violation
"counts" as rape.
Nearly all rapists are men.
Why?
Here's one idea:
http://www.ted.com/talks/tony_porter_a_call_to_men.html
What happens to victims of rape?
sleep disturbances, eating pattern disturbances, mood swings, feelings of humiliation and self-blame, nightmares, anger, fear of sex, and difficulty in trusting others.
STDs
Pregnancy
Rape Trauma:
So what can we do?
Avoid risk factors:
1. Alcohol and drug use.
2. Being alone with someone
you don't know well.
3. Not talking about sex with
your partner.
4. Not watching your drink
at a party (date rape drugs)
Educate!
1. Encourage friends to
speak up and report rape and
find mental health help.
2. Treat others how you
want to be treated.
3. Put a stop to talk that
objectifies women.
1 in 3 women will be
sexually assaulted at some
point in their life.
Your friends
Your mothers
Your cousins

How different would Melinda's
year have been if it hadn't been
for those few minutes with Andy
Evans?
