Both men and women can be victims of rape and both men and women can be supports for the victim. (The gender "she" is used in this article for the victim, however, this is not always the case.) There are many things you can do to support a rape victim. It's important not to judge the rape victim and to listen to her and let her know that you are there for support.
And keep in mind that it takes time for a rape victim to heal.

Many do not involve physical violence (because it's pointless to resist when someone is holding a gun to your head).
Whatever happened, if you said you didn't want to have sex but were forced anyway - you were raped.
