A worldwide campaign called, Unite Against Rape, has been launched by women’s rights group, UniteWomen.org. The purpose of the campaign is to support rape victims/survivors, as well as bring the discussion of our current rape culture into the forefront of media attention and public discourse. You can get more information about the campaign on the UniteWomen.org Facebook Page.

Join in. Become That Guy. The one who takes action, takes a stand, unites with the world to Change It For The Better. Goodness knows we Women and Girls, we Females have been advocating for this across the ages – we cannot do it alone because:

It Is A MAN’S Issue.

Because you know what? I’m absolutely tired of it. How do you think it looks to us Women and Girls when we see time, effort, attention and funds being spent on things like electrocuting panties and pundits telling me I need to get a gun.
How About You Stop Raping. How About That?
I about DIED when I read about Angelina Jolie’s devastating decision to remove her breasts. Instead of hacking off healthy female body parts How About We Cure Breast Cancer Already. How About That?
Don’t worry about what I’m wearing, where I’m walking, what I’m drinking, about getting me a knife or a gun or pepper spray, or what time of day or night it is:
How About Men Begin to Worry About Men Who Rape and How to Stop Them? Worry about the the abusive guy, worry about the sexist creeper, worry about that nice guy next door who terrorizes his family every day. Worry About That.
We are not the problem. You are the solution.
