One in Four college women have survived rape or attempted rape in their lifetime.

One in four college women have survived either rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. The US Department of Justice published a study in 2006 of over 4,000 college women. In that survey, 3% of those women had survived rape or attempted rape in a 7 month academic year, alone. An additional 21% had survived rape or attempted rape at some point in their lives prior to that academic year. When you take those two figures and add them up – the 3 and the 21 – you get 24%, or roughly one in four.

One in four women in the military experience rape or attempted rape during their military service.

Research has shown that throughout the U.S. military, between one quarter and one third of women experience rape or attempted rape during their military service. What is particularly alarming about this statistic, in addition to its magnitude, is that 96% of the perpetrators of this violence are other members of the U.S. military.

Research shows that The Men’s Program leads to a 40% decline in sexual assault behavior, and much more.

A study published in the Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice showed that high risk men who were treated with The Men�s Program committed 40% fewer sexually coercive acts during their first year of college than a control group who did not see The Men�s Program (TMP). This was statistically significant beyond the 95% level of confidence.

Research shows that The Women’s Program leads to increased bystander intervention, and more.

A formal evaluation of the Women�s Program published in the Journal of Community Psychology used quasi-experimental design with a sample of 179 mostly first-year women at a large southern university. The sample was divided into a treatment group and a control group based on class sections in which they were enrolled. Treatment participants saw The Women�s Program. All participants completed measures of rape myth acceptance, bystander efficacy, and bystander willingness to help.
