Dr. Pauline Bart, feminist sociologist at Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine in Chicago, is interviewed by Paula Darte about her NIH-funded research on rape in November 1978. In her research, Bart interviewed 94 women who had either been raped or had avoided being raped to determine the best combination of variables that would lead to rape avoidance. She discusses how the findings of her study have largely contradicted the advice given by Frederic Storaska in his book "How to Say No to a Rapist and Survive It." Contains brief readings from Storaska's book by John Rieger and from Dell Fitzgerald-Richards' "The Rape Journal" by Carole Bennett. Technical assistance by Karla Tonella, Carole Bennett and Shelley Real[sp?].
