Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture-and What We Can Do about It

Product Description

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.

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 100 rapes only 5 result in felony convictions-supports rapists more effectively than victims.
