Violence

Hi. I am beginning my doctoral dissertation/project this term. My focus is going to be on teen girls who have been date raped. I am trying to get information, resources, etc. for this as I put together my proposal and literature review. Any suggestions/information/resources/referrals that you might have or be aware of would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time, Rachel

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM --and mostly for educating people about the reality and prevalence of date rape.

A few sources I suggest you reference:

  • The FBI, which has recently conducted studies on this. Also, a local police station might have information.
  • The Wellsley Center for Research on Women at Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA--and maybe the American Association of University Women, which is based in Washington, DC.
  • Robin Warshaw's I Never Called it Rape.
  • Since your focus is teenagers, you might try "girl-focused" groups such as: Girls, Inc. (their national office is in NYC); Teen Voices Magazine (based in Boston).
