The RAP Project, (Raising Awareness and Prevention), was established in 2012 in order to deliver no nonsense, hard hitting yet humorous presentations to teenagers in the UK about negotiating relationships in the digital age.  RAP’s aim is to raise awareness about personal safety and empowering teens with the messages of mutual respect and mutual consent.  Presenters Deana and Allison tackle taboo subjects such as rape, sexual assault, consent, the influence of pornography and sexting on teenage attitudes and expectations. RAP has addressed over 12,000 students over 100 schools since it began. These include Fettes School, Fortismere School, Eton College, St. Paul’s Girls School, St Paul’s School, Hampstead School, Felsted School, Priory Park and St Mary’s Ascot amongst many others.

Deana is a former Sex Crimes Prosecutor who worked in the United States’ first department dedicated to investigating sexual crimes in the Kings County District Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn, New York. Allison is a writer/producer and media consultant who has worked for ABC News, NBC News, Associated Press Television News and Fox Business News amongst others.

Deana and Allison are both mums living in London with teenagers. Their guide for parents, Sex, Likes and Social Media: Talking to Our Teens in the Digital Age, published in 2016, was named as one of The Sun‘s Top 5 Parenting Books, and one of The Independent‘s Top 10.

“Equal pay and a place at the table are the central tenets of feminism. Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.’” - Benedict Cumberbatch

"I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity." - Michelle Obama

I'm 17, and earlier this year I gave a speech to 600 students at my school about my experience of sexual assault 3 years ago and how to help others if they are sexually assaulted.
