The RAD System Objective is to develop and enhance the options of self defense so they may become a viable consideration to the woman who is attacked. RAD means "rape aggression defense."
Delaware Valley College offers a free Rape Aggression Defense class once a semester to female students, employees and friends of students and employees only. This 15-hour class, consisting of approximately 12 to 15 women, is designed to make women more aware of their surroundings and empower them through self-defense. Classes are usually offered during October, February and once during the summer. Classes are advertised on WDVC TV and flyers that are placed in resident halls and public bulletin boards.
