9781845408374: Why Rape Culture Is a Dangerous Myth: From Steubenville to Ched Evans
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Today it is often said that we live in a 'rape culture'. Panicked headlines tell us that rape is on the increase and that the police are failing to deal with it. Our courts are said to be incapable of delivering justice in rape cases, with the rate of convictions remaining consistently low. Sexism and misogyny in wider society have created a culture in which rape is pervasive, under-reported and often ignored by an uncaring public. But these claims are built on myths and misunderstandings. This book argues that the belief in a rape culture is seriously distorting our discussion of sexual violence. It explains how the laws around rape have expanded significantly in recent decades, giving the state a far greater say in the most intimate areas of our lives. The drive to prosecute more and more people has damaging implications for our legal rights and basic freedoms and our ability to live intimately with one another. If we are to have a serious discussion about rape, it s time to dispel the dangerous myth of rape culture.

Revue de presse :

Despite his gender and background (neither of which are his fault), Gittos has produced a useful and intelligent analysis that clarifies and makes sense of an issue that has become very muddled. --Ann Furedi

I'm used to reading about sexual violence from the victim's point of view and it was interesting and thought-provoking to consider the problem from a different perspective. In places it was challenging: I'd failed to appreciate the extent to which I'd absorbed many of the myths about sexual violence and I really did have to rethink many of my attitudes and shake out a lot of easy assumptions. Going back to the basic principle that a defendant must be presumed innocent until proven guilty and realising that this must equally apply to violence against women and girls clarified quite a few points in my mind. --BookBag Review
