Rape in U.S. Prisons Documented

On April 17, Human Rights Watch released "No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons." The 378-page report, based on more than three years of research and more than 1,000 inmate letters, attempts to explain why and how rape occurs, who commits it, who the victims are, and what reforms can be instituted to prevent it. The Web version of the report features first-person testimony from prisoners and two short documentary films, "The Rodney Hulin Story" and the "The Rules of the Game: Prison Rape and Reform." The films -- the first time HRW has featured streaming video on our Web site -- were created for HRW by Gabriel Films.
