Transcript -3- RAPE TASK FORCE by Judy Snyder, Chair Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be raped? Since rape is one of the foremost threats against us, we probably think about it and have nightmares about rape more often than we realize. But these fears and bad dreams can be conquered only when we refuse to ignore the problem. Only when we name the source of our oppression can we fight the forces that keep us in fear. One of the best ways to begin that fight is to join the Rape Crisis Program. Before you join, you are given twenty- six hours of intensive training on such topics as historical perspectives of rape, the myth of rape, the psychology of rape, and the counseling of rape survivors. These twenty- six hours serve as a consciousness raising experience, forcing the participant to examine the issues and attitudes pertaining to rape, a topic many of us would rather put aside. In the training sessions and afterward, the trainee is struck with the magnitude of the problem and with the necessity for finding solutions. Later, the new recruit is given supervised experience on the rape crisis line, in preparation for regular three- hour shifts on the hotline. These shifts can now be taken in the Clear Lake area instead of the Women's Center downtown. Most o^ us also become PAY's, or personal accompaniment volunteers. This means that we cany a beeper for a week (used only when we are away from hornet at night or on weekends). It also means being awakenc: from a sound sleep at four o'clock in the morning, getting into your car by yourself, and driving to a nearby hospital to be with a survivor. Are there rewards for this superhuman effort? When you hear the survivor tell her story (M0h, it was awful, Judy. I never thought it would ever happen to me...Should I tell my child3*en about it? I have a teenaged daughter...) you realize you are listening to a woman bare her soul to express the agony shared by millions of v:omen. And you become more determined to fight—to wipe out the root causes of this problem that we face. con't on pg 4
