She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong. Also, at one point at the Center, Janine completely loses it. She speaks as though she is her old self, a waiter. Therefore, Moira has to slap her into consciousness. “Moira slapped her across the face, twice, back and forth.
The Sheriff who talked to Brandon had absolutely no compassion for him and what he went through. “Society 's posture on rape, and the manifestation of that posture in the courts, help account for the fact that so few rapes are reported” (Anonymous 247). This quote from The Rape of Mr. Smith relates to this scene because Brandon went through a terrible thing, that no person should have to go through, and he was interrogated about it and shown no compassion. “The law discriminates against rape victims in a manner which would not be tolerated by victims of any other crime” (Anonymous 246).

What one person considers heavenly can be an absolute hell for another. It is, therefore, difficult to delicately handle the strings of the sensitive matter without creating certain friends and certain foes. Although the ultimate motto must be kept in mind- “art for art’s sake”.

This place being what? This place being South Africa" (Coetzee, 112). Since Disgrace is taking place after apartheid, it is reasonable to believe that Lucy does not report it since she knows what the cause of her rape is, the rapers are angry at how they were treated during apartheid. This also suggests that Lucy knows what would happen if she reports it, a witch hunt for the people who raped her which would most certainly imprison many innocent black men and a controversial discussion of violence against whites would
Rape culture has also changed the meaning of “no”, which in this society can mean “maybe” or “try harder” leaving both people wondering whether consent was actually given.

The rule of corroboration as developed in the case of rape has also been extended to the victim’s testimony in other cases of sexual abuse including unnatural
At a first sight, it might seem like the show blames Madison for what happened to her; after all, she was wearing provocative clothes and she was drinking, and as rape culture teaches, “She was looking for it!”. However, American Horror Story: Coven challenges this trope by not making Madison’s rape glamorous; by showing it in its brutality, the show wants to criticize rape culture and slut shaming, underlining how brutal and beastly rape culture and slut shaming are, without accusing Madison of being raped due to her apparel and attitude. Moreover, what is different from most of the rape cases is that Madison, instead of acting as an unarmed victim that feels guilty and ashamed for what happened to her, gets her revenge, by overturn the boys’ bus only with a finger, showing how strong, powerful and vindictive she can be – just like a
