Rape Action Project's invitation to public street trial
and brochure for "They Say We Ask For It" play (1979)
The Rape Action Project (RAP) was a group of Boston women who organized
to encourage the Massachusetts legislature to make changes to rape
statutes. Using street theater to spread their messages, RAP engaged
audiences with staged performances and actual testimonies of rape.
The first letter asks women to participate in a public street trial
against Governor Edward King. The second brochure describes and
shows pictures of RAP's play, "They Say We Ask For It."
From the Sondra Gayle Stein papers.
