Exploring Community Responses to Statutory Rape


This report summarizes nine case studies by The Lewin Group that explore how states and communities are responding to statutory rape. Exploratory site visits suggest that addressing and preventing these unequal partnerships is difficult to accomplish by any single program or governmental agency. Instead, a range of service providers and governmental entities are involved, including health care providers, educators, law enforcement personnel, and advocates associated with sexual violence or rape crisis centers. The study design explores how organizations within states and communities are working together in various ways to approach the issue of statutory rape.
