Let's End it Now: Stopping Sexual Violence in Correctional Centres (A Resource for Staff)

This booklet discusses sexual violence in South African correctional centres. It focuses on how to support victims of rape, and on how to prevent inmates from becoming victims in the first place. While this booklet considers the assistance, support and protection needed by both male and female victims, the main focus is on male victims.
