Philadelphia Center Against Sexual Violence [formerly Women Organized Against Rape, or WOAR]


Women facing sexual violence rarely speak up or call the police because they know what awaits them. Even good men hate it when women express their feelings, often responding with mockery, insults or threats. There’s a box in the minds of American men, a box labeled 'Girl Problems,' into which men can stuff any complaint made by women they wish to ignore.”

A world without rapists would be a world where women moved freely without fear of men.  That some men rape provides a sufficient threat to keep all women in a constant state of intimidation forever conscious of the knowledge that the biological tool must be held in awe for it may turn into a weapon with sudden swiftness borne of harmful intent.
