About the Rape Crisis Pathfinder Return to menu

This pathfinder is for rape victims and their loved ones who are trying to heal and seeking resources to do so. Most rape victims suffer from ptsd, ocd and eating disorders. This pathfinder was created by the researcher as a graduate student in the MLS program (Library Science) at UNC Chapel Hill.

Scope: This pathfinder covers international rape crisis resources and research with a focus on the United States. This includes crisis information pages on North Carolina and Louisiana. Subjects dealt with are rape and sexual assault research and rape crisis resources. The research section includes: journal articles, statistics, reference resources, victim blame research, films, bibliographies and online research tools and databases. The crisis resources include international rape crisis center directories, information on health and the psychological effects of rape, date rape drugs, LGBT sexual assault, male sexual assault victims, victim assistance / legal resources, war and rape and online support groups.

The catagories of resources are based on an analysis of the information needs of the online rape survivor community for a collection development research project. A third project on how to communicate the mind set of rape trauma syndrome (PTSD, OCD and panic attacks) via images and text was completed as well. The bulk of the information is found under online resources based in part on the need for privacy for assault survivors. The most up to date and useful sources also tend to be online. The biographies are also a good source of healing and catharsis. What happens to a person in the aftermath of rape can make all the difference in the amount of post traumatic stress disorder one suffers in years to follow. Resources change quickly in a world of date rape drugs and general ignorance by the mainstream. You are not alone. The more you understand about what you are going through the more quickly the sharpness will become softer. Many other people have experienced this trauma and what they have learned can help guide you in your healing path.

This website is divided into two catagories:

I Rape and Sexual Assault Research

II Rape Crisis Information- health and diversity and hotlines

The research resources are primarily reference books and online resources. The Crisis resources are largely online for privacy and convenience.

Online Encyclopedias

 

Encyclopedias are good place to start research on any topic. They give a general overview of the subject and are a starting point to research more specific aspects.

For the topic of rape and sexual assault online Encyclopedias generally have more up to date information than paper based resources.

Groliers Online Encyclopedia

http://www.ncwiseowl.org/

To access Groliers Online Encyclopedia free of charge- just click on Encyclopedia and then text only version (pop up window) and type in search term rape. It is the top return. This entry is one of the best overviews for the topic of rape that I have found. It covers recent aspects (date rape) as well as the history of rape in our society. It includes the concept that women are a legal possession of their spouse or father, information on date rape drugs such as rohypnol and ghb and the Bosnia rape trials.

§

Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001955.htm

Medline is a reliable source of medical and statistical information. "According to most estimates, 80-90% of rapes are not reported to authorities. Current trends project that 1 in 3 American women will be sexually assaulted at some point during her life. "

§

Columbia Encyclopedia

http://www.bartleby.com/65/ra/rape3.html

The Columbia encyclopedia. Sixth edition, 2001-04

This entry for the definition of rape in law covers most of the current issues in sexual assault. Some of those are date rape, proof of injury, feminism's role in improving victim resources and rape as a war crime. Free to the public.

§

Funk and Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia


http://eresources.lib.unc.edu/eid/list.php?letter=F

This online source is much more satisfactory than most paper based entries for rape.

§

Quick reference

http://www.lib.unc.edu/reference/quick/

Primarily free online resources such as dictionaries, thesauri and encyclopedias from UNC Chapel Hill.

§

Evaluation of the Groliers and Funk & Wagnalls online Encyclopedias:

Both Online Encyclopedias were much more thorough than the paper based counterparts. There were two returns each for the term rape. Subjects covered were generally the definition of rape, statutory rape, recent statistics on rape, the history of the issue, International law regarding Bosnia trials, and the previously unmentioned category of date rape and date rape drugs.

The primary difference between the two online encyclopedias is that Grolier's is much more comprehensive than Funk and Wagnalls. Both carry the same tone and mention feminism and its fight to improve conditions and rights of rape victims. Funk and Wagnall's statistics report that a rape is reported in the US every 6 minutes. It also mentions that in court "for the crime to constitute rape, the victim must resist, unless he or she is incapable of resistance because of mental or physical weakness or deterred by fear of bodily harm." Grolier's takes it a step further by explaining the history of rape in terms of underlying assumptions by our society. "The origin of rape laws can be traced to the once-wide spread belief that women were the property of men. A female was considered first the property of her father. Because her virginity was valued as her principal asset, rape was considered a theft. Once a woman was married, she belonged to her husband. Rape then was treated as a crime against the husband's exclusive sexual rights to her. Because marriage gave these rights to the husband, legally, it was not possible for him to rape his own wife." This statement points to flaws in the criminal justice system. The author of this site's general conclusion is that rape victims and researchers can get better information from internet resources that allow modern ideas on the subject to easily be expressed and updated.

 

Paper based Encyclopedias

§

Encyclopedia of Rape

Smith, M. D. (2004). Encyclopedia of Rape. USA: Greenwood Press.

HV6558 .E53 2004 Davis, UL, Law Reference

"Book Description-


Rape has been perpetrated throughout history and worldwide, and today ours has been called a rape culture, because sexual violence, mainly against women and children, is prevalent and tolerated to some extent. The Encyclopedia of Rape offers 185 entries in an A-to-Z essay format covering the historical scope and magnitude of the issue in the United States and globally. Written by a host of scholars from diverse fields, it provides informed perspectives on the key dimensions of the topic, from concepts, social movements, offenders, high-profile cases, legislation, influential activists, landmark texts, and victimology to representations in literature and art. This solid, accessible ready-reference will allow students and the general reader to contextualize current events and reading and viewing in history, literature and the Bible, film, art history, gender studies, psychology, criminology, popular culture, and more. "

§

World Book Encyclopedia

Macdonals, John (1993). World Book Encyclopedia. United States of America: World Book Inc.

"94,000 rapes were reported in 1989… But officials estimate that the actual number of rapes committed may be 10 times the number reported." -W. B. Encyclopedia.

World Book goes into detail regarding the overall failure of the justice system and how that occurs. Some examples are the fact that only 2% of rapists are convicted due to difficulty proving the attack. In some instances proof that the victim struggled is required. World Book includes information relating all this demand for proof with intimidation in regards to reporting rape. It is also stated that defense attorneys try to prove the lack of the victim's morals.

§


Evaluation of the above paper based Encyclopedias:

Both of the Encyclopedias covered the following topics:

  • The definition of rape
  • The definition of statutory rape
  • The fact that most rapists are not convicted (only 2% mentioned by world book)
  • Explanations for why victims are intimidated into not reporting the crime.
  • The fact that in trials the issue becomes whether the woman consented to sex.
  • The psychological definition of rape as an antisocial act of power rather than sex.
  • The traumatic after effects suffered by the victim.

How to purchase healing books - search at your local library first. If the library doesn't have what you are looking for you can suggest that they purchase it or ask for the book through interlibrary loan. You can also order it online from www.amazon.com.

Each citation is followed by the opening lines of the first chapter. I thought this would give the reader a feel for the tone and content of the book. They are listed in order of priority.
Biographies can be very triggering so make sure you have
emotional support if you choose this path.

"In the tunnel where I was raped, a tunnel that was once an underground entry to an ampitheater; I will always think of her when I think of the pink hair tie"

The above quote refers to a police officer telling the author she was lucky not to have been killed like the previous victim raped in the same location. The book deals with the topics of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and the victim's subsequent heroin addiction resulting from her pain. It is told with considerable wit and candor.

"It's as if a deep wound, long buried, has been laid open."


This is a very emotional account told by the husband of a rape victim. Very triggering. This text is recommended only if you have reliable therapeutic and moral support available. It could possibly be very cathartic if you are prepared for the content.

1986-1990. Coker, Ann L., and Elizabeth A. Stasny.

http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/NACJD-STUDY/06558.xml

The researchers considered whether the type of interview (personal or telephone) and the presence of another person (particularly a spouse) influenced or "gagged" the reporting of rape and domestic violence in the NCVS. It is hypothesized that the inclusion of such yes/no questions would more easily allow victims to report rape or domestic violence incidents in telephone interviews, even with spouses present in the home during the interview.

Films and Performances On Sexual Assault

Movies That Trigger

http://www.moviesthattrigger.com/

Movies that trigger is a web site for women and men who have been sexually assaulted or raped. "many movies have scenes in which someone is sexually assaulted, threatened with sexual assault, or who narrowly escapes being sexually assaulted. Watching scenes like these often brings back traumatic memories and can trigger a panic attack or a period of depression." This site has a searchable database of triggering films.

Rape Is...

http://www.cambridgedocumentaryfilms.org/rapeis-info.html or http://www.rapeis.org/index.html

Rape is...a documentary film which explores the meaning and consequences of rape. It is about "a human rights outrage that leaves millions of women, children and men in a state of terror and pain”.This film is just out and has great reviews. UNC may not have it but perhaps visart will get it soon.

Rapeis.org has great links and is an excellent supplement for research or presentations on rape crisis resources.

"Cambridge Documentary Films produced the documentary, "Rape is…," as one part of the global effort to stop rape in all of its complex forms...This discussion guide provides supplementary information and discussion resources for the Cambridge Documentary Films production, "Rape is..."

We believe that "Rape is..." is an effective tool for social change when used in conjunction with an organized post-viewing discussion. The film introduces important and controversial ideas and the discussion allows viewers to explore and make those ideas their own.."

Vagina Monologues

How to find journals and articles :

An online tutorial

Return to menu

Open a web browser (internet explorer or other) and type in the url for your local library homepage (example: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/) .

Click on databases or database finder.

Databases work like google except instead of pulling up websites they pull up journal articles.

Some useful database titles are listed below. Either look up the databases listed below alphabetically or use the subject finder(usually a down arrow)

Scroll to women's studies, sociology or psychology.

Read the description listed under each of the database titles. Choose the one you think is best for your topic and click on it's title.

You should see a search box. Enter the search term "rape" or else "rape or sexual assault" without quotations.

A list of article titles should appear. Click on one of the titles for more information. If you see a link that says "full text" - click on it and the full article should pull up. At this point you can either print it out ($) or copy paste the text into an email message and send it to yourself.

If it does not have full text online then find the paper copy. Write down the journal title, year published, volume, issue number, pages and article title. Note: Journal articles are found by the journal title rather than the article title. You will search for the journal by title, then the year it was published, then volume, issue and page number. In that order.

It should look like this:

"Available from LibraryAU: Wasco,-Sharon-M; Campbell,-Rebecca; Howard,-April; Mason,-Gillian-E; Staggs,-Susan-L; Schewe,-Paul-A; Riger,-Stephanie
TI: A Statewide Evaluation of Services Provided to Rape Survivors.
SO: Journal-of-Interpersonal-Violence. 2004 Feb; Vol 19(2): 252-263
WEBLH: Check for holdings"

Either click on "check for holdings" or type the journal title into the online catalog .

Locate the correct year, volume and issue of the journal. Write down the call number and ask a librarian where the periodicals are located in the library (it varies).

Don't forget to use boolean search terms: and (limits search), or (expands search), * (looks for multiple endings such as assault*, assaults, assaulted). You can also use these to search the internet. You may also be interested in finding a bibliography on your subject.

Further information:

What is the difference between a scholary journal and popular resource?

Use the citation builder for your bibliography.

Databases to search:

I recommend this database for almost any subject related to women (such as marriage and religion etc.)

GenderWatch
"GenderWatch (enlarging the scope of Women 'R') is a full-text collection of international journals, magazines, newsletters, regional publications, special reports and conference proceedings devoted to women's and gender issues"

~
Horeck , T. (2000). “They did worse than nothing”: Rape and Spectatorship in The Accused. Canadian Review of American Studies, 30(1), .


This article is an analysis of a very moving film about a woman who was gang raped in a public bar. It is a triggering article describing how the spectators regarded the attack as either entertainment or none of their business. The title The Accused brings to light the question of whether the victim or the criminal is being accused of a crime. Find the full text article here.

Pauwels, B. (2002). Blaming the victim of rape: The culpable control
model perspective. Dissertation-Abstracts-International:-Section-B:-The-
Sciences-and-Engineering, 63(5-B), .

Database: PsycINFO

This is a scholarly article examing why we blame the victim rather than the perpetrator of rape.

"Three vignette-based studies are presented that represent the
first attempt to examine rape victim blame within the context of an
explicit, comprehensive theory of blame. Study 1 examined the
hypothesis that evaluative information about a victim of rape would
have a greater effect upon victim blaming when the victim's personal
control over the rape was portrayed as somewhat elevated, rather than unambiguously low."

~

Lipstyle, R. (1998). A step in the healing process: Rape victim forms the national coalition against violent athletes. New York Times, 5108(C22), .

"Kathy Redmond, now 24, starts National Coalition Against Violent Athletes after being raped at the University of Nebraska two weeks into her freshman year. Ms. Redmond's rape by Christian Peter, now playing for the Giants, was not reported until two years after the assault. Ms. Redmond hurried efforts to gain attention for the coalition once hearing of an friend's suicide by another Giant's football player. The coalition is in its infant stage, but the book, "Public Heroes, Private Felons" published by a renowed researcher Jeffrey R. Benedict, an expert in the field of violent athletes, states that over the last three years there has been an average of 100 criminal complaints of physical or sexual abuse against women by athletes..."

Dunn, P., Vail-Smith, K., & Knight, S. (1999). What date/acquaintance rape victims tell others: A study of college student recipients of disclosure. Journal of American College Health, Mar;(5), 213-219.

"Presents information on a study concerning the response of college students to disclosure of date/acquaintance rape victims. Relationship of the victim to the person to whom the rape was disclosed; Results of open-ended questions; Responses to disclosure."

"Date and acquaintance rape appears to be a significant problem in American society in general and accounts for approximately 80% of all rapes on college campuses; in every college classroom with 50 female students, 6 to 7 women have been victims of date or acquaintance rape within the past year.(n1) Access to "good support from the people in her life is extremely important to the rape survivor,"(n2)(p106) according to Mufson and Kranz, particularly because a lack of support may impede successful recovery from the trauma of rape. Although rape is a traumatic, destructive, life-altering experience, some researchers suggest that a significant proportion of victims do not tell anyone about being assaulted when it happens, particularly if they have experienced date or acquaintance rape, and a majority of rape victims seek no follow-up counseling.(n3) "

~

Hanson, R. (2002 ). Adolescent dating violence: Prevalence and psychological outcomes. Child Abuse Negl, 26 (5), 449-453.

Database: PsycINFO

"In support of the authors' hypotheses, findings from this study indicated that dating violence was associated with significantly higher rates of eating disordered behaviors (e.g., binge-eating, fasting, skipping meals, taking diet pills, vomiting, taking laxatives), lower self-esteem, higher rates of suicide attempts, and lower levels of emotional well-being. "

~
Bales , J. (2000). Is the Silence Broken?30 years after rape crisis centers, women are being heard.. WebMD Features , 3/27/00, .


This article addresses the issue of poor treatment of rape victims by medical staff. Part of the article discusses the advanced facilities at Duke University in the triangle area.
“This past fall, when Duke's specially designed center opened, it joined an evolving nationwide trend toward gentler, specialized, more effective treatment in the aftermath of assault. The facility, like others across the country, has been consciously designed as a safe, calm setting, where patients who've undergone sexual trauma can be offered more than emergency medical treatment. “

How to help a friend

Most rape victims are suffering from rape trauma syndrome and PTSD which makes them extremely dissoriented. At this stage they may do or say things which don't seem to make sense. They are often unable to function on a level at which they can help themselves.
It is crucial that those around them educate themselves to recognize the symptoms and help them get treatment. The links below will help you begin to understand and help your loved ones.

End Abuse

End Abuse Campaigns: Reaching Men
Coaching Boys into Men
Boys are swamped with influences outside of the home – from friends, the neighborhood, television, the internet, music, the movies… everything they see around them. They hear all kinds of messages about what it means to “be a man” – that they have to be tough and in control. There are numerous conflicting and some harmful messages being given to boys about what constitutes “being a man” in a relationship. So teach boys early, and teach them often, that there is no place for violence in a relationship.

This pathfinder created by M.E.M.

INLS 111 UNC Chapel Hill INLS Graduate Student

Created March 2003

 

About the Rape Crisis Pathfinder

This pathfinder is for rape victims and their loved ones who are trying to heal and seeking resources to do so. Most rape victims suffer from ptsd, ocd and eating disorders. This pathfinder was created by the researcher as a graduate student in the MLS program (Library Science) at UNC Chapel Hill.

Scope: This pathfinder covers international rape crisis resources and research with a focus on the United States. This includes crisis information pages on North Carolina and Louisiana. Subjects dealt with are rape and sexual assault research and rape crisis resources. The research section includes: journal articles, statistics, reference resources, victim blame research, films, bibliographies and online research tools and databases. The crisis resources include international rape crisis center directories, information on health and the psychological effects of rape, date rape drugs, LGBT sexual assault, male sexual assault victims, victim assistance / legal resources, war and rape and online support groups.

The catagories of resources are based on an analysis of the information needs of the online rape survivor community for a collection development research project. A third project on how to communicate the mind set of rape trauma syndrome (PTSD, OCD and panic attacks) via images and text was completed as well. The bulk of the information is found under online resources based in part on the need for privacy for assault survivors. The most up to date and useful sources also tend to be online. The biographies are also a good source of healing and catharsis. What happens to a person in the aftermath of rape can make all the difference in the amount of post traumatic stress disorder one suffers in years to follow. Resources change quickly in a world of date rape drugs and general ignorance by the mainstream. You are not alone. The more you understand about what you are going through the more quickly the sharpness will become softer. Many other people have experienced this trauma and what they have learned can help guide you in your healing path.

The Blue Elephant

This story was not written by the author of this website. It is a universal story describing how many survivors cope with sexual assault. It was written by Lisa Mapes.

"Throughout the past few years of trying my damnedest to survive; I’ve had a secret that I’ve been hiding. Holding onto it closely as if inside of it is locked the secret of whom I once was. For some reason, I cling to it, trailing behind the guilt of what happened one day of my life. I’ve felt the urge to name it, and keep it hiding under my pillow, a huge secret, bigger then an elephant, that god forbid, someone should see, if I forget to make my bed.

At first I called it the assault. It was a fairly ambiguous name. It didn’t allow one to suspect more then maybe I had been in a fight with someone outside of a nighclub or that I’d maybe been the victim of a purse snatcher. Then as time progressed, It seemed as if it had grown an attachment to me, and at the same time it was changing form. It was becoming me, or was I becoming it? Maybe it was changing me into something I did not want to be.

I was stressed, anxiety began to fill my days and nights. I was afraid to be alone, watching every shadow, terrified of what might be lurking around the corner. Everlasting fear grew that I’d have another elephant thrust upon me, and I would die from its enormous weight crushing my now frail soul.

With utter contempt for it was doing to me; I held on tight. It was mine; this huge horror I had been hiding. Despite it being forced upon me, in the middle of the night, maybe in some dark alley way, or perhaps in my own bedroom; I had somehow allowed it to become my possession.

I did not want this elephant anymore. It had become my burden. I no longer existed, and I had suddenly become what happened to me that one moment in time. I had let the elephant overcome me. I was no longer able to look forward.

One day I realized the elephant had grown so large, I couldn’t hide it under my pillow anymore. Suddenly it was appearing everywhere in my life. Why was it following me? Why did I not leave the burden lie for with whom it belonged; the perpetrator? Why did it have it follow me to work, out with friends or even to the grocery store?

I couldn’t hold my head high, I was filled with shame. I wanted to hide at home in order to keep my secrets to myself. Surreptitiously, I’d hoped that I could hide in my closet away from my secrets grasping for seconds of freedom from my shame; or that maybe I could lock them away in a cupboard to revisit another time.

Something needed to change. Years of carrying this elephant had begun to take its toll on my life. I had realized that the only way I was to be autonomous, was to let go of this elephant. I had to accept it wasn’t my burden to carry. This burden was my perpetrators, and even if he wasn’t willing to acknowledge his responsibility. I had recognized this was not my affliction.

I decided one day, to leave the elephant at pound. It was not mine to carry around. I was able to walk without guilt, because I’d forgiven myself for the pain I had allowed myself to suffer when I thought that I was to blame for this affliction. I would allow myself to mourn.

I realize that my life will never be the same having carried an elephant so long. I will never be the same person, nor do I think I’d want to be. I’ve discovered how strong I really am; because it takes a lot of strength to carry around a blue elephant."
