  • Research suggests that one in four college women has survived rape or an attempted rape in her lifetime. This master's thesis examines the roles men play in trying to reduce that statistic. It focuses on the stories of four men who spent this year presenting sexual-assault education programs to college students across the country. It explores the social, historical and political contexts for their work in an effort to understand why men are becoming increasingly involved in rape prevention. Reporting included an extensive literature review, visits to the homes of the four primary subjects, three weeks spent following them to five college campuses and interviews with more than 60 sources. The final product is a long-form narrative in the tradition of literary journalism. It traces the stories of a movement, an organization and four young leaders.
