Hi,

What exactly is rape kit?

I assume it means number of tests that a victim has to undergo, after being raped.
I have to translate it, and I'm not sure that my language has all this tests comprised in one word.

Thanks

Hi, Antonia:

A 'Rape Kit' is more professionally referred to as a 'Sexual Assault Kit'. It seems that your question is also asking however, about tests included in the kit? If this is so, let me just give you a couple of ideas:
*2 types of kits are available (1) for the victim and (1) for the offender/perpetrator of the crime

- Victim's kit will include these things and more:
*pick and envelopes for collecting debris/samples from under fingernails (nail scraping)
* camera for taking photos of injuries
* slides, swabs and containers for collecting vaginal and rectal swabs and smears
* anatomical drawing chart
* clothing bags, etc.
PLUS MORE!

I hope this is helpful for envisioning what you are trying to talk about with your English students.
