This paper argues that physically fighting back and the type of physical self-confidence gained through defense sports and sports in general should come to the forefront of the debate against rape. The author feels that the question at hand is how women can both protect themselves and, if they have been raped or assaulted, find a way to cope with the tragedy which has occurred.

From the Paper:

"Kickboxing, Martial Arts, and good-old-fashioned women's self-defense are offered at gyms, on college campuses, and by women's groups across the country. Yet when discussing the issues of rape and date rape, more often than not its the purple colors that represent Take Back the Night and blue light phones that are talked about. Are these the sorts of images and words that should reframe the issue of date rape?"
