Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent by Dr. Amy Menna The title of this article is "Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent" by Dr. Amy Menna.
Rape. It is a powerful word for a power hungry act. It breeds fear and in many cases, it breeds silence. It is important that this silence be broken, and survivors be heard. By doing so, we break the grasp that rape has upon so many. The aftermath can be immense. The journey to heal may be terrifying; the steps, long and tedious. By building a bridge of awareness and empowerment, woman and men who have experienced rape can be healed and heard http://www.giftfromwithin.org/html/acquaintance_rape.html -
