"Several years ago, they took a university course called "Psychology of Violence Against Women" and learned that most women are brought up to be passive and to not assert themselves."
Bullshit.In the USA anyways(though the above seems true in the arab world).Women are just naturally less violent and more passive than men.
If anything society tries to offset this natural inclination.It seems half the action movies star women these days and how often even in action movies starring men are the women leads shrinking violets? Rarely.
Beka called it right. Not only is the "thug" scenario less likely than the acquaintance scenario, but also the things outlined in the article just sound like typical overly-academic overly-complex kung fu that hasn't been tested in a hundred years. I think it would have the effect of making an inherently chaotic and violent situation seem misleadingly organized and theoretical to the student.
"I am a therapist who took your four-hour workshop with my 16-year-old daughter after a serial rapist started stalking our neighborhood. We left feeling sure that we had the skills to defuse most situations as well as to fight off an attacker if necessary. I never knew we had so much strength!"
What, the strength to throw an amateur elbow with 4 hours of training behind it? Feeling sure that you could "fight off" someone who massively out-powers and out-weighs you because you had 4 hours of training?
Why is that a good thing? It's death by delusion, dude!
Because a reported crime doesnīt mean its solved! My point is that its easier to arrest and convict a known person, its easier to collect evidence and so on. If a rapist assault an unknown person in a park, its very easy to get away with it even if the person report the crime. Assaulting a person you know, the risk that the person reports the crime is smaler, but IF the crime is reported, the risk of getting caught and convicted is much greater. Sovled crimes and reported crimes are two different things.

I agree with the risk factor bur statistics show they get away with it more than stranger rape. I understand what you are saying about convictions I agree. Still the people who get away with it more are friends according to statistics. Plus, with the women I know this more true than not..

My point is thats its very hard, epecially in rapecases, to get a conviction if the rapist is unknown to the victim. I study criminology in sweden so now I have checked are statistics, and we have the same situation here, women tend to not report rape if the rapist is known to her -like her husband or close friend. The same thing with assault, most people tend not to report them if the person who did it is close to them.
If the rapist is unknown, the chances to find him is very limited. Your chances to get away is big.
