This document identifies how the crimes of rape and sexual violence must, as a requirement of its own statute and a matter of international human rights law, be interpreted and applied with equality between men and women by the International Criminal Court (the Court). The Court has yet to rule on this matter in its jurisprudence.

The second phase of NSVRC’s Prevention Assessment project focused on interviews with innovative prevention programs and a diffusion survey to document how innovations have spread throughout the sexual violence prevention field. The emphasis of this assessment was on how programs are thinking about primary prevention and the processes that allowed innovation to develop. This Year 2 report contains findings from that assessment.
In 2009, NSVRC contracted with Dr. Stephanie Townsend to assist in developing a plan to measure the primary prevention capacity of the sexual violence prevention field. This is a three-year process being conducted in collaboration with the CDC and CALCASA/Prevention Connection. This is the Year 1 report for the project.
El abril es hora de iniciar un diálogo, y el tema de la conversación es la sexualidad saludable. El campaña 2012 del Mes de Conciencia sobre la Violencia Sexual (SAAM) motiva a comunidades y personas a unirse al diálogo acerca de cómo nos comunicamos y nos respetamos mutuamente para prevenir la violencia sexual. En inglés.
The 2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign encourages communities and individuals to join the conversation on how we connect and respect one another in order to prevent sexual violence.
The 2012 SAAM campaign provides tools and resources that focus on promoting positive expressions of sexuality and healthy behaviors. Promoting healthy behaviors encourages sexual interactions and relationships that are consensual, respectful and informed. By starting the conversation, this dialogue can build safe, healthy relationships and communities. Many resources are also available in Spanish.
