- Program has lasting effects, reducing sexual assault across at least 2 years.
- Participants can detect risk in situations earlier, have more knowledge of effective defensive strategies and greater willingness and confidence to use them.
- Significantly reduced self-blame in women who took program and were subsequently raped.
