Woman on Man sexual assault

http://www.geocities.com/Wellesley/Gazebo/8216/males.html

"It seems to me that when rape is discussed as a problem, male

survivors are left out of consideration. While males are less likely

to be raped than are females, this does not mean that male rape is

not a problem. In that spirit, I am gathering links that are of specific

interest to male survivors."

Strap-on.org
LGBT safe space for survivors of sexual/physical/emotional abuse, assault & rape. - "This will be a strange attempt to define our community with a long list of labels, but mostly, it's a place for us to talk about personal, political, and other issues related to queer and feminist identities and ideas. and queer/punk music. or something. strap-on.org is a fun name and the domain was available. it doesn't mean we all necessarily like or use strap-ons. we come here to share and discuss and learn from each other. if you're only here to solicit sex, look somewhere else.

Ending abuse in lesbian, bisexual women's and

"The Network/La Red was formed to address battering in lesbian, bisexual women's, and transgender communities. Through a) the formation of a community-based multi-cultural organization in which battered/formerly battered lesbians, bisexual women, and transgender folks hold leadership roles; b) community organizing, education, and the provision of support services; and c) coalition-building with other movements for social change and social justice, we seek to create a culture in which domination, coercion, and control are no longer accepted and operative social norms."

Female on - Female Abuse Links

"Our members are a diverse group of women of varying ages, backgrounds, locations, occupations, sexual orientations, family status, etc. What all our members have in common is the experience of having been sexually abused by their mother and the courage and fortitude to come share with and support other women on the same healing journey."

Lesbian Sexual Assault Brochure

"Why don't we hear more about this?
Because many people define rape as penetration by a penis, woman to woman rape is not acknowledged or is not taken seriously. But in fact, it is estimated that 1 out of 3 lesbians have been sexually assaulted by another woman."

Breaking The Silence: Sociologist Studies Woman-to-woman Sexual Violence
"Although Professor Lori B. Girshick hasn’t yet concluded her study of woman-to-woman sexual abuse, what she has found so far confirms that this kind of abuse is real and that it needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, a lot of people are reluctant to admit there’s a problem. Many more are just not interested."

Sexual Assault & Rape Information for Lesbian,
Transgender and Bisexual Women

http://www.safe4all.org/info
Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) provides unique services for domestic violence victims. We look for those who typically fall between the cracks, and are receiving the least amount of help -- people for whom few services are available. Our approach is to view domestic violence as a human issue. We often say it this way, "it does matter what type of person you are, if you're in an abusive relationship, it is the type of experience you're having that is important. The services you receive should be based on what you need, rather than who you are." That is the goal we work towards.
However, there are also problems that individuals face based on the fact that they are men or women, gay or straight, old or young. SAFE addresses their individual concerns, and fills in the gaps in domestic violence services.
