Center exists to help sexually assaulted women
By KATHY HOPPER
Assistant Features Editor
According to the Orange County Rape Crisis Center,
one out of 12 women will be raped in her lifetime. Bet
ween 6 and 13 percent of the women in Orange County
have been raped, according to the center.
"Rape does go on around us and everyone should be
aware of it," Lt. Ralph Pendergraph of the Chapel Hill
Police Department said.
Pendergraph said he was one of 20 officers working
on the recent rape cases. .
,Tve put in 12 hours this and last week not paid."
Pendergraph said more than 50 percent of those
charged with sexual assaults ,are : convicted in Chapel
Hill.-.- V b r n: 'rf'"l sjw till n't !''-' r'f'
Chapel Hill Police1 Department social worker Jane
Cousins works with rape victims throughout the legal
process, Pendergraph said.
"We're the only police department in North Carolina
with a social worker in the department. It's having a lux
ury most departments don't have."
Mary Ann Chap, director of the rape crisis center, said
that in Chapel Hill about half the rapes go unreported.
In 1983 the center received 53 reports of rapes and sex
ual assaults. The Chapel Hill Police Department received
"We hear more because of our effective system,"
Chap said. The figure, also includes women who were
raped before 1983 but reported it in 1983. Women are
under no obligation to take legal action when they call
the center, and their names are kept confidential, Chap
There are several things a woman can do to prevent
being raped, Chap said.
"First she must realize that she's worth defending.
Secondly she should be aware that rape exists. The Girl
Scout motto 'Be prepared' is also important. Know what
you would dp in that .situation. Women should be strong .
-and assertiye. .Sometimes women forget hovtrotigthey1' s!
are.' Be creative and use all your capabilities' to deal with" '
Chap said the "don't fight it" idea is not accurate.
"Research says if you fight, three-fourths of the time
you'll avoid it. We encourage you to assess the situa
tion; you should make a decision and be committed to
that decision," Chap added.
Pendergraph also said women should think about self-:
"Don't feel foolish if you're suspicious. If you sense
that someone is following you then make them commit
to following" you. Be conspicuous or walk in a different
direction. Go to a place where there's light and people,"
The center reports that out of 1 ,006 rapes reported in
North Carolina in 1978, 31 percent took place in the
woman's home. Seventy-four percent involved people of
the same race, 48 percent involved a rapist previously
known to the woman such as a friend or relative.
Twenty-five percent involved the use of a weapon and 27
percent involved injury to the woman. Sixty-three per
cent resulted in the arrest of the rapist.
. Chap said4 since not all rapes occur when women wajk
alone at night the RAPE escort' service cannot fully pfio
tcct therii. Itidoesn'tdeal with the most common form of
rape on the campus, date rape.
Chap emphasized the importance of reporting a rape.
"When a woman reports a rape, she's taking
control," she said. "She's giving the man some notoriety
and is saying 'You can't get away with this.' She should
also say 'If I report this, I did not let him get away with
this and this could help someone down the road.' The
more women report, the more control they will have."

Men today can understand rape victim 's feelings of fear
By KATHY HOPPER
Assistant Features Editor
Rape is not just a woman's issue. It is a
problem that also affects men.
James Keith-Brown, a senior
psychology and zoology major, has seen
the trauma and frustration first-hand in
both women and men. He is a male com
panion at the Rape Crisis Center.
"I talk with rape victims and their
husbands and boyfriends. We try to
relieve the tension between them."
Keith-Brown said he became a compa
nion this semester through the course
Woman's Studies 90 and is receiving
credit for his work at the center.
"It was strange at first. Sometimes you
feel all the blame put on you. I really
wanted to be informed on the guy's
perspective on rape."
Lt. Ralph Pendergraph of the Chapel
Hill Police Department said, "Sometimes
I get offended. I realize that it's a crime
where men are not as supportive. . But
some men work long and hard hours to
help prevent it."
Keith-Brown said most men often
tended to blame their girlfriend when she
"They'll get really angry. But he
shouldn't blame her. We're there for
them to take their frustrations out on us,
Keith-Brown said he tries to make men
understand what the victim is going
"Be empathic. Believe them and let
them know you believe.' Be there for them
and donTfluestion them.
Keith-Brown said it was also important
for men to understand the problem of
"Guys are likely to say 'she led me on,'
especially if the girl has a bad reputation.
Some may say 'if a girl has gone this far,
then she'll go all the way.' When she ob
jects some might say 'she's just frigid.' "
The Orange County Rape Crisis
Center's pamphlet Rape is Everybody's
Problem lists four things men can do.
"First work on reforming your at
titudes and feelings by recognizing rape as
a violent attack, against women. Then
work for reform in the community's at
titude by speaking up when you hear rape
treated as a joke. Be a model to your
friends and let them know how you feel
about rape. Remember that until society
rejects the myths and misconceptions
about rape and begins treating rape as a
serious problem, there will never be a real
solution to the crime of rape"
Keith-Brown said, "The girls don't
want it. They don't enjoy it. Men need to
realize these are myths and work to break
