Topics we cover in Girls Fight Back & Students Fight Back that are shown to be EFFECTIVE sexual assault prevention for college students:
- Self-Defense including how to yell and break holds
- Definitions of Consent
- Debunking the myth of stranger danger and defining acquaintance rape
- Bystander intervention
- Clarifying the right to personal boundaries
- . . . with an approach that is dynamic, includes role-playing, discussion, and problem-solving
It’s a complicated issue and there is no one perfect approach, but a multi-faceted approach to sexual violence including these techniques has shown time and time again to save lives and decrease violence.
This great article from the New York Times states:
Sexual violence is a serious hazard on college campuses. . . . In a randomized trial, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, first-year students at three Canadian campuses attended sessions on assessing risk, learning self-defense and defining personal sexual boundaries. The students were surveyed a year after they completed the intervention. The risk of rape for 451 women randomly assigned to the program was about 5 percent, compared with nearly 10 percent among 442 women in a control group who were given brochures and a brief information session. . . . “It’s an important, rigorous study that shows that resistance and self-defense training needs to be part of college sexual assault prevention,” said Sarah E. Ullman, a professor of criminology, law and justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who was not involved in the research.
