Not counting references, it is 16 pages long and raises important issues. Some of her description of what different groups believed about gender (what was biological and what was social) in the history of efforts to stop sexual violence feels a little simplistic and may reflect the perception of certain groups more than they do the full reality of what those people believed. However, these limitations don't reduce the importance of this report and the need to consider the issues raised such as the problems of using the construct of "healthy relationship" in education meant to prevent sexual violence.
Because this report is on education, it only addresses non-educational aspects of primary prevention indirectly as they relate to education. The main discussion of non-educational aspects is about the lack of consistent funding and the lack of an overall strategy that has full, consistent support.
The most important take away I got from this report is that we need to look critically at educational prevention programs and we need to understand that just having something called primary prevention education doesn't mean having something that is effective at preventing sexual violence.
As I was reading this report I was envisioning a school where the unwanted activity was being ignored as it was happening at school by school employees (through a mix of apathy and hopelessness) and then a whistle blows and students are told to settle down and then are taught about the way they should behave and then at the end of the lesson a whistle blows again and the students and the school employees revert to their pre-prevention state.
When sexual violence or dating violence prevention education is in sharp contrast to the reality of a school and the community it is clear to me that education given to students cannot alone make any significant progress toward the goals of primary prevention. Fortunately, the realities of school environments and communities are not fixed.
We need to create environments where taking the appropriate action or refraining from taking the wrong action are supported and are easier and more natural choices.
