Count Men into Rape

In a United Nations report examining violence against women, almost a quarter of men surveyed in parts of Asia admitted to committing at least one rape. Ten thousand men from six countries took part in the survey.

Of course the widespread use of rape is alarming, but at least this survey is focused on the men who commit that violence. Too often data and prevention programs focus on women.

The only way to stop rape is for males to stop raping females. Obviously men as the cause of the problem have to become part of the discussion in order to work toward any real solution.
