SadA Man’s Guide to helping a Woman who has been raped.

You could be the Husband, Father, Partner, Brother, or Friend of a girl, or woman who has been raped, no matter what your relationship to the victim, it has now irrevocably changed.  You want to help, but probably don't know how and possibly feel helpless, frustrated and angry whilst walking through a minefield of conflicting emotions.

The document covers issues of;

  • The role of helpful men
  • What to say and do
  • What fathers need to know
  • Information for husbands, boyfriends, and sexual partners of a survivor
  • Consequences and recovery from rape
