Estimate of the Incidence of Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault in the U.S.

This review assesses the effectiveness of programmes seeking to engage men and boys in achieving gender equality and equity in health. The review analysed data from 58 evaluation studies of interventions with men and boys. Interventions were rated on their gender approach, using the following categories: gender-neutral - programmes that distinguish little between the needs of men and women, neither reinforcing nor questioning gender roles; gender-sensitive - programmes that recognise the specific needs and realities of men based on the social construction of gender roles; or gender-transformative - approaches that seek to transform gender roles and promote more gender-equitable relationships between men and women.
 
Engaging Men and Boys in Changing Gender-Based Inequity in Health: Evidence from Programme Interventions

The first section of the guide outlines existing laws that provide domestic violence victims (and in some states, victims of sexual assault and stalking) time off from work to address the violence in their lives and/or that protect victims from employment discrimination related to the violence. The second section outlines proposed legislation on this topic. Each of these sections is further divided into those laws or bills specific to domestic violence (and, where applicable, sexual violence and stalking) and those laws or bills that relate to crime victims more generally.
