In the book, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in College Town, by Jon Krakauer, the reader delves into how rape and sexual assault are treated in the town of Missoula, and the University of Montana. As the reader, we are informed on how the university, the police department, the district attorney’s office, and the community reacted to these rape and sexual assault allegations. We see how the criminal justice system has failed the victims, and are forced to live with what happened to them, while their assailants are free of any burden. The law is set in place to protect people from victimization, but when the men, in this book, are not legally held accountable, then any woman, or man, is more susceptible to victimization. It is interesting

The victims in both cases are different but have a few similarities in the cases. In the Glen Ridge Rape Case a woman with an intellectual disability was assaulted. This woman who was identified as M.G., was lured into the basement by a group of male athletes that went to the same high school as her. She was known in the community for her disability making her easy to manipulate and there were a few instances where people did take advantage of her disability and convinced her to do things that were wrong and sometimes inappropriate (“The Glen Ridge Rape”,2003). The other victim is a young girl whose name was not given, and she was raped at a high school party after getting highly intoxicated. Many witnesses say that they saw her passed out, unable to walk, and even called her a mess during the time. There were various pictures and videos of her posted that night where the statements of the witnesses were confirmed (Strasser,2013). Both victims were taken advantage of and thankfully their rapists were both convicted. The first case was a little more difficult because there’s always going to be an issue with disability and consent. The other victim’s consent could not be given because of her intoxication.
“Although concerning sexual practices between adults and children have existed throughout history and across cultures, whether such behavior was conceived of and defined as ‘abuse’ has been dependent on the societal values of the particular period” (Denov, 2004). In today’s society, sex offending has become an increasingly, concerning phenomenon that individuals must become more aware of. Although generally regarded as a male phenomenon, over time, female perpetrators have become equally important as male perpetrators. Due to the lack of public awareness, female sexual predators go unreported. As a result, society must become more aware of female sexual perpetrators, as many incidents of females assaulting both young men and women have gone unreported for some time. The following paper will focus specifically on why female sex offending is an important issue that the public must become more aware of.
