The study in this book regarding 6000 college students was a staple in my research at Elon University. I am currently the president of Men Creating Change which looks at Rape from a men's perspective. His study sparked a similar study at Elon University hosted by my organization which looked at how college students define rape, and if that has any influence on the prevalence of rape and seuxal assault on campus. What we found was that over 67% of those surveyed admitted to not having a clear definition of rape. Amazing stuff! Warshaw's study gave a great foundation for this study. A MUST READ for anyone who is studying similar subject-matter!
