I was really impressed with what I read - I felt it was sensitive, and straight to the point, but in a way which did not stoop to male-bashing and would not necessarily make men feel defensive. What I felt to be its most valuable point was its willingness to educate well-meaning men about day to day activities through which they could unwittingly be causing women to feel threatened and/or degraded.
I have kept this copy through an inter-city move and now an intercontinental one. In late 1998, I decided to call the United States phone number on the brochure, not really expecting the organisation to still exist at that number. Luckily, the contact details were still valid, and I received permission to reproduce this information on my website. As soon as the Men Stopping Rape website is up and running, I will be linking it to this page.
