Meet the Predators

Acquaintance rape isn’t simply a mistake about consent. The vast majority of rapes are being committed by a small group of men who do it again… and again… and again. The notion that these predators are somehow confused good guys does not square with the data.



5-50 times? That’s no “accident.”

These men are habitual line-steppers; they know what they’re doing. And they know how to do it without getting caught.

Here’s what we need to do.
