The Men's Program
How to Help a Sexual Assault Survivor: What Men Can Do
55 Minutes plus Q&A
This powerful program approaches men as potential helpers, not as potential rapists. By seeing a video where a shocking male-on-male rape is described in graphic detail, men learn what it might feel like to be raped. They also develop empathy with how women feel as survivors. After this life-altering experience, audience members hear how to help women recover from rape, learn how they can better define consent in their own intimate encounters, and how they can intervene as bystanders to help end the abuse of women. Since 1993, this program has been seen by tens of thousands of men nationwide in colleges, high schools, community organizations, prisons, police departments, health departments, and rape crisis centers. Women who have previewed the program have also found it to be a powerful tool for educating male audiences. An independent review by Professor Paul Schewe at the University of Illinois found that this is the only sexual assault program ever to show long-term (over 7 months) positive effects.

New! The Women's Program
45 Minutes plus Q&A
"The Women's Program" is a program presented by the One in Four RV Tour presenters. Because few women perceive themselves to be potential victims of rape, the program will focus on how women can be effective bystanders with their friends in high risk situations, particularly those involving alcohol. In addition, the program will focus on how to help a friend recover from sexual assault without blaming the victim. As part of the program, male actors will role play the differences between men who are more likely to rape and men less likely to rape, so that women in the audience can be better informed about the subtle distinctions that distinguish high risk men. A number of factors including drinking patterns, personality characteristics, and behavior patterns will be demonstrated to help women recognize when a man is likely to be a threat to their friends, and ultimately, to them. A variety of strategies about how to deal with such men will be discussed along with a variety of resources to help in the aftermath of a sexual assault.
