Abstract: »Daniel Burton-Rose (see the chapter entitled "The Anti-exploits of Men against Sexism, 1977-78" in this volume) chronicles the evolution of the group Men against Sexism, which was founded by Ed Mead in 1977 to reduce the incidence of prison rape. Ed went from cell to cell to discuss the problem with fellow prisoners, and the mere act of talking instead of being shamed into silence caused a striking reduction in the number of occurrences. This suggests that men collude in silence in the continuation of cruelty, and it is possible for caring men to get together to put an end to the worst cruelty. At the very last, the experience of Men against Sexism provides convincing evidence that something can be done to prevent prison rape.« [Terry A.
