Report: Sharper tried to stop violence against women before alleged rapes

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Feb 18, 2014

It appears that Darren Sharper, who is accused of drugging and raping women in numerous states, was an advocate against violence committed on women.

He said that women were "undervalued and exploited" in an essay written for a book, according to USA TODAY.

"Money cannot buy the women we love everyday security, which men take for granted...so, it's going to take strong, accountable men to educate young boys and influence other men to deal with women respectfully, honorably and fairly at all times."

Sharper reportedly will head to court Thursday in Los Angeles over charges that he reportedly drugged two women, then raped them.

There are allegations that Sharper raped and drugged women in four states.
