THERE MIGHT BE A NEW SOLUTION TO PREVENT ABUSE AMONG GIRLS AND WOMEN!!!!
We have had a hard time spreading awareness in the matter of women considered to be the reason behind RAPE. Almost every aware rational citizen today believes it is BOYS who are the actual problem. But 'NO MEANS NO', a worldwide 'violence against women prevention' program for girls and for boys, in Nairobi, Africa brought into the light what might be the actual reason behind this sadist nature among boys.
This huge campaign against sexual abuse in women initially focused in developing self defense skills among girls as like every other person in the world they believed the self defense techniques when taught to girls may prevent them from being raped more than any thing else but later, upon learning that girls are more likely to be raped by boys who are actually close to girls meaning their friends and even boyfriends NO MEANS NO started working towards Positive Masculinity. The positive empowerment focused towards boys, working towards the theory, If boys are the problem, then boys themselves can be the part of the solution.
It was after all not their biological structure that was the problem but their social construct which is why after incorporating the same self defense training and NO MEANS NO all along brought a huge drop in the rape cases and men who earlier thought it was justifiable to rape women, now started to defend them.
'NO MEANS NO' World needs to start with early education on the topics of consent and assault and We are the World. 'NO MEANS NO' might be the answer to our ever so growing question of how to prevent Rape.
