Rape and Sexual Assault Awareness

Rape and sexual assault are serious crimes. Women can help insure their safety by exercising caution and by following these words of advice:

  1. Use common sense. Avoid being in an isolated situation or with someone you don't know.
  2. Be cautious about alcohol consumption. Most acquaintance rapes involve alcohol.
  3. In a dating relationship, communicate openly and clearly.
  4. If you are raped, talk to someone you trust-a friend or rape crisis counselor, and be sure that the crime is reported to the local police. For phone numbers, look in Where to Go, Where to Call in this handbook, under Rape. More resources can be found at the Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention office.
