Programming has been historically directed towards women by providing them with information about how to keep themselves safe rather than confronting a climate conducive to sexual violence.

A psychological approach to rape prevention. This book goes in depth into how to adopt the mindset to prevent sexual assault, as well as looking at the profiled behaviours of rapists.
