Sexual Assault Prevention Tips That Are Guaranteed to Work!


This is a great (and entertaining) article that does a good job of highlighting some of the issues with current prevention techniques.

There was recently an article on Jezebel (http://jezebel.com/5355724/what-if-keeping-women-safe-meant-educating-men) about such prevention efforts, and what is the most effective way to teach sexual assault prevention. So many times, we hear things like "cover your drink" or "don't walk alone at night" or "use the buddy system." The article at the link does a really great job at turning the table on these prevention methods. It is almost so absurd that it makes you laugh, but at the same time, it says exactly the right things. It is not the survivor's responsibility to protect themselves, rather it is the perpetrator's responsibility not to assault.

Come to our mass meeting on Wednesday, September 23rd, at 7pm or 8:30pm in the SAPAC office to talk more about this, and similar topics!
