The Making of Sexual Violence: How does a boy grow up to commit rape? states that between about 4 and 25 percent of men across the study sites reported having perpetrated rape. Among the findings are an association between experiences or witnessing of violence during childhood and rape perpetration in adulthood, as well as an overlap between men’s use of different types of violence. The report calls for more work with boys at a young age, focusing on gender equality and non-violence and addressing the concept of male sexual entitlement.
