One in 12 college men admitted to committing acts that met the legal definition of rape.
More than one in 5 men report "becoming so sexually aroused that they could not stop themselves from having sex," even though the woman did not consent.
35% of men report some likelihood that they would rape if they could be assured they wouldn't be caught or punished.
81% of on-campus and 84% of off-campus sexual assaults are not reported to the police.
Fewer than 5% of attempted/completed rapes are reported to law enforcement.
Nearly 60% of rapes occur in the survivor's residence hall.
52% of reported rapes/sexual assaults occur after midnight; 37% occur between 6pm and midnight.
In a survey of students at 171 institutions of higher education, alcohol was involved in 74% of all sexual assaults.
The organization: Men Can Stop Rape, is pleased to announce the launch of WHERE DO YOU STAND?, a new bystander intervention campaign for college men. WHERE DO YOU STAND? positively portrays young men as vital allies and invites all men to consider their own stance on men preventing sexism and sexual assault. The WHERE DO YOU STAND? Campaign Guide is full of information on how you can launch the campaign on your campus.
BE ACTIVE: Contact Patrick McGann or call him at 202.534.1834 to learn how to bring WHERE DO YOU STAND? to local campuses and communities in your area.
