Read more about University of Colorado's controversial rape prevention guidelines here.

In an attempt to curb victim-blaming in media and on college campuses, Brooklyn filmmaker Cat Del Buono made a short satirical film mocking the trend.

The film observes as one woman attempts to follow every instruction that women have been given to prevent being raped.

This video came directly as a reaction to the guidelines put out by colleges like University of Colorado. I think it was around the same time the Stuebenville rape was all over the news. I started looking up other "tips" and basically found the same sort of ridiculous advice where the responsibility is put on the victim.

"Nothing has really changed to focus more on how to teach our young men NOT to rape. That's what needs to happen."
