The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Maybe it's time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing some of the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape.
What others are saying

If you're promoting changes to women's behaviour to "prevent" rape, you're really saying, "make sure he rapes the other girl.

Please teach your boys not to rape instead of telling your girls that it's up to them to not "tempt" rapists. End rape culture.

Rapists cause rape. Prevention is on THEM.
