Rape Educators Focus on Bar Staff in New Zealand

Freitag 18. Dezember 2009 von htm

„Rape educators want to train New Zealand’s bar staff to intervene when they see ‚predatory males‘ plying women with drinks during the Rugby World Cup. Rape Prevention Education (formerly Rape Crisis) has teamed up with the police, Accident Compensation Corporation and the hospitality industry to train 130 bar staff in Auckland and Wellington in a pilot programme this year. Director Kim McGregor said she hoped the other agencies would help to extend the programme nationally in the lead-up to the World Cup, which kicks off in September 2011. ‚We need to do much more on prevention and social attitudes, for example around the [Cup],‘ she said. ‚For us it’s an opportunity. We have two years to prepare for it.‘ The programme targets bars because three-quarters of sexual offenders and half of all „date rape“ victims were drinking or taking drugs before offences occurred. A fifth of sexual violence happens in or around licensed premises.“ (Source: Harvard World Health News, 12/17/09) The New Zealand Herald, 12/12/09
