These are the most prominent and well rounded sites I have found. If you are only going to visit one or two
sites for an overview I would recommend one of the following:
The premier source of information and support to survivors on the
internet serving nearly 1 million hits yearly through it's page and message views in the chat rooms, forums and of course,
the main site itself.
The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) is the nation's
largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE.
RAINN also publicizes the hotline's free, confidential services; educates the public about sexual assault; and leads national
efforts to improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice. This site is the most well known
national rape crisis hotline available today. It was founded by Tori Amos. Local rape crisis centers can be found
at this location.
An Abuse, Rape & Domestic Violence Aid & Resource Collection
Web site, which provides statistics and current events as well as other useful information about sexual assault.
“Welcome to Barbados* is a Tori Amos inspired site for rape
and sexual abuse survivors. In the following pages, you will find my story as well as the stories of hundreds of other courageous
survivors. I hope to provide for each visitor a safe place to learn, teach, and grow. What is said may be triggering; please
stay safe while exploring this site, and I wish you the best of luck in healing. -shannon”
“Welcome to emergence. survivors of sexual violation, their
friends and family, and anyone else who wants to be supportive, helpful, and respectful of this sacred space is thoroughly
welcome here. please come with an open mind and an open heart. in creating this place, i hope that somehow, at sometime, someone
else finds a piece of their own strength and determination, and sees in the mirror their own beautiful reflection.”
Feminist site with a good overview of the aspects of rape and sexual
assault. International scope.
This site has great links and is an excellent supplement for research
or presentations on rape crisis resources.
Films produced the documentary, "Rape is…," as one part of the global effort to stop rape in all of its complex forms,
and to bring an end to a human rights outrage that directly threatens millions of women, children and men throughout the world."
This site takes you to a search engine for webrings. Just
enter the word rape in the search box and it will show you the categories. Webrings are groupings of websites which
associate with each other.
