WASP (Women Armed for Self-Protection) came out of feminist consciousness-raising groups, doing reform work surrounding rape such as training the police in how to properly deal with survivors. Recognizing the problems and limits of these activities, they began moving on to more confrontational stances. They did graffiti (“WOMEN - CASTRATE YOUR RAPIST”), urged lawyers not to defend rapists, pushed women to train in firearms and proliferated information on using guns, publicly defended women who killed rapists, observed rape trials, etc. After a rapist was acquitted, they produced 10,000 leaflets including his name, address, place of employment, photograph, and what he had done, and leafleted his neighborhood and workplace.
