You& Rape by Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust.

You and rape booklet

You and rape is a booklet that was published by the Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust.


In 1992, the Natal Midland Black Sash, the Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust and a number of other women’s organisations from Cape Town and Pietermaritzburg started a public education program. The program was designed to assist rape victims to deal with their trauma, as well as assist them get justice.  While running this program, it became apparent to members of the Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust that there was a serious educational gap when it came to rape. Many victims did not know their rights, how to report this injustice to appropriate legal authorities, neither did they have the required support to deal with the psychological and physical trauma. So member of the above trust decided to compile the information that they had gathered over the years from the experiences of rape survivors, communities and organisation they had worked with.

Although this booklet may have information that is only pertinent to people living in South Africa, ie the statistics, a great deal of the information in you& rape is relevant and helpful.
