Prevalence of and factors associated with non-partner rape perpetration

Jewkes at al – Our study provides evidence from a large multicountry study that non-partner rape perpetration is quite prevalent among men in the general population across a range of diverse settings, and emphasises that a focus on rape prevention activities in childhood and adolescence is essential to prevent occurrence of rape. We also note that most men who rape a non-partner woman are likely to rape more than one woman (whether partner or non-partner) or also rape a man. Our findings provide confirmation of the importance across cultural and global settings of factors previously described to be associated with perpetration of rape in published literature from the USA and South Africa. Our study also provides evidence from population-attributable fractions and expressed reasons for rape that to address gender-inequitable social norms and gender-inequitable construction of masculinity is of high importance to prevent rape perpetration.
