Abstract: THE CONTENTS OF MOST PAMPHLETS TEND TO PRESENT INFORMATION ON HOW TO PREVENT RAPES, OR ON WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IF A RAPE HAS OCCURRED, OR ON THE CRIME OF RAPE, INCLUDING FACTS ABOUT RAPISTS AND THEIR VICTIMS. THE AUTHOR FOUND THAT SOME PAMPHLETS VARY IN THEIR OPINION OF WHETHER RESISTANCE SHOULD BE USED IN CASE OF RAPE. THE PAMPHLETS PUT OUT BY WOMEN'S GROUPS ARE GENERALLY MORE COMPREHENSIVE THAN THOSE PRODUCED BY POLICE DEPARTMENTS. PAMPHLETS SHOULD ALWAYS INCLUDE THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND ADVICE FOR THE POTENTIAL RAPE VICTIM....BDS
