Abstract

Fifty-four male undergraduates (average age of 19.2, 74% Caucasian, 13% Asian American, 9% Hispanic, and 4% African American) participated in a rape prevention education program in which they listened to an audiotape of a man versus woman describing the experience of being raped (or they listened to no such audiotape). Two weeks later, the students who heard the female tape reported more likelihood to engage in rape-supportive behaviors but no difference in empathy or rape supportive attitudes.
