Light of Day
A results-based analysis on objectification and sexual violence
Why do so many defendants of sexual assault go free? What can communities and individuals do to minimize situational opportunities? When the unthinkable happens, how can we be better prepared to deal with it? Any of us may become a victim of bullying, witness a sexualized assault, or find ourselves in the thrall of addictive, violent, sexual behavior. We may have witnessed a colleague, neighbor, or family member tormented by their experiences, or we may be suffering ourselves. But patterns of sexually assaultive behavior can be altered and prevented with each person doing his/her part to change society.
Employing a crime prevention triangle of managing locations, offenders, and target-victims, Light of Day creates a model to make the necessary societal changes. It offers empowerment to victims, recovery for perpetrators, and teaches preventative care for communities by providing a conceptual, hands-on, practical text to lead college classes, human resources professionals, managers of sites, and individuals to establish safer environments and decrease sexualized assault.
Light of Day is for people who are influential in the lives of potential offenders. It is for those whose job it is to protect people and property from crime. And it is for those who have been or may be target-victims of bullying sexualized assault. No one needs to be left to feel helpless.
