Sexual assault occurs when someone threatens or forces another person to have sexual contact against his or her will. Rape is a type of sexual assault. All rapes are felonies, punishable by at least one year in prison.

Due to the myths and stigma surrounding it, rape remains a difficult crime to discuss. The Truth About Rape, Second Edition looks beyond common myths to give a factual account essential to understanding, preventing, and coping with rape and sexual assault. This new resource offers trusted advice, information, and accounts from real people, making it an invaluable addition to any home, school, or library.

  • Rape and society
  • Rape in war
