Here's a list of things that you can do to help change
how men think of rape and to assist in changing prevalent
attitudes toward rape:
how other men's uncaring or wrong behavior might affect
your own life. Some woman or man that you care about
may have been raped. Understand that this person might
need your support but might be unable to enter into
a relationship at the present time. Also realize that
some women who have been raped might feel distrustful
of men in general.
other men's rape jokes and remarks; relate to others
why these jokes are not funny and the harm they can
other men's harassment--verbal or physical--of women.
Most women don't consider it flattery but rather a reminder
of their vulnerability to rape.
other men about what rape really is. Help them to clear
up any misconceptions they might have.
a man who you don't recognize what they are doing in
your dorm or residence, or who it is they are looking
potential rape scenes. When you see a man verbally harassing
a woman, stand by to see if she needs help. If a man
is hitting or holding a woman against her will, do something
immediately to help her.
walking in groups or alone, be conscious as you approach
a woman. Be aware of how afraid she might feel, and
give her space on the street if possible.
supportive of women's actions to control their own lives
and make their own decisions. Don't be afraid to express
someone you know has expressed violent feelings or demonstrated
violent behavior in a particular relationship with someone,
try to help him or her find an appropriate person with
which to talk (counselor, RA, etc).
