Description

The Date Rape Prevention Book is a proactive source of information essential for girls and women to safeguard themselves. Being armed with information is a woman's best defense. These pages look at when and where date rape happens, what turns an ordinary man into a rapist and the three ingredients in most acquaintance rapes. In non-judgmental terms, the book explores the roles of drugs and alcohol, tells women what to do if they are confronted and provides communication techniques and physical maneuvers that do not require martial arts training to help women escape an escalating situation.
