Description :

Language: English . Brand New. From Congressman Todd Akin s legitimate rape gaffe to the high school rapists of Steubenville, Ohio, to the furor at Vanderbilt, sexual violence has been so prominent in recent years that the feminist term rape culture has finally entered the mainstream. But what, exactly, is it? And how do we change it?In Asking for It, Kate Harding answers those questions in the same blunt, no-nonsense voice that has made her a powerhouse feminist blogger. Combining in-depth research with practical knowledge, Asking for It makes the case that twenty-first-century America--where it s estimated that out of every one hundred rapes only five result in felony convictions--supports rapists more effectively than victims. Harding offers ideas and suggestions for addressing how we as a culture can take rape much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused. N° de réf. du libraire

About the Author:

Kate Harding has been writing popular feminist rants for Internet audiences since 2007, most notably at Jezebel, at Salon's Broadsheet blog, and at her own body-acceptance blog, Shapely Prose. She's also the coauthor of Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere, a major contributor to The Book of Jezebel, and an essayist who's been published in several anthologies, including Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World without Rape. Kate recently started a new Tumblr blog, Don't Get Raped (victimblaming.tumblr.com), which uses news items about sexual assault to catalog the many situations women--and men and children--have to avoid to fully protect themselves against the threat of rape. She lives in Minnesota.
