In the 1970’s, there was an increasing number of rapes and attempts of rapes on campus from the previous year. Volunteers and students came together to come up with a plan to prevent rapes from happening on campus. Since there were no legislations to provide students protection against rape, students and volunteers teamed up using tactics and strategies to fight back against rape. In a section of a newspaper clipping retrieved from the archives titled, “Local groups offer non-violent ways for fighting against rape” the editor Linda Tufano reports statistics on rape.
They could have been left traumatized, or felt as if they no longer felt safe or protected while being on campus. This should have been a huge concern in the Illinois community because rape is wrong, and if this kept happening, students could start to lose their sense of safety because rape can happen to anyone. Yet, even today, generations later, rape is still a prevalent issue on the U of I
Rape and sexual assault does not only occur in the ancient times of The Scarlet Letter but is extremely prevalent in today’s society and is normalized through the depiction of rape culture presented in the media. In today’s society, it is imperative to address the rape culture that is being cultivated by the objectification of women, normalization of violence against them, and the recurring victimization of the victim because it leaves men confused in their relationships with women and women feeling disempowered and violated. One of the initial causes of rape culture is the way in which women are being objectified by men and the media as it creates a society that disregards women’s rights and safety. From a very young age, men are encouraged to believe that all women are property because of the media.
Let me explain why. For Starters, the Juvenile Justice center doesn’t help some of the troubled teens. According to “Report: Juvenile justice system schools “do more harm than good”, it states, “Overall, 30 percent reported they had been physically or sexually abused, 37 percent had problems with hearing, sight or teeth, and 20 percent “wished they were dead,” according to the report.” So not only are the teens not being helped out, but they are getting abused physically and sexually.
The fact is that male rape victims exist and should be given the same treatment that female victims are given. They should not be told they are lying or that they should have enjoyed what has happened to them. Even though the media is becoming
Few care to find out a victim's story because society believes she's been around or maybe she wasn't so innocent after all or it was her boyfriend/husband or look at what she was wearing or she's just another wild college student. Before we know it there's such a thing as rape culture. We as a member of society are a part of it as adults caught up in a cycle that only seems to get worse. Sexual assault starts with a few rumors or unwanted look then there's the sexual harassment or being groped next you're being followed into an alley where it all goes dark. The CNN video is a clear example of why sexual harassment on the street isn't taken seriously because the men who are objectifying women see it as a simple compliment portrayed by Steve
this is when they were talking about what type of damage the war can cause to kids. As a result of this evidence I can say that , kids should not be in war especially girls because of the sexual assault that goes on in the military and Ultimately, it
Twitter rumors about what happened the night the two men allegedly committed rape made it difficult to determine the truth and lies. The evidence at the court was limited to tweets, photographs and cell phone videos that could not be authenticated. The internet became the venue for shaming the two young men. Activists gathered online to condemn the accused without giving them a chance to be heard. They also mobilized people to demonstrate outside the court and promoted the campaign on twitter referred to as #OccupySteubenville.

The article explains how sexual assault continues to be a problem until this very day. When someone is sexually assaulted, it is very hard for them to cope with the fact that someone has touched them in the wrong way. For the ones who commits the assault, it will only become worse for them. A National Study says, “The main source of inmates’ knowledge of prison sex appears to come from their conversations with other inmates”(Response to the Prison Rape Elimination Act). Some inmates could portray the role of acting as if they are there for the victim to talk to, but there are other things that could result from this.
As founder Alicia Garza states, #BLACKLIVESMATTER has moved from being just a social media hashtag to a social movement that is out in the streets. This research will provide insight on just how powerful this movement is both as a social media hashtag and an actual protest organizer. Many researchers are interested on the effects that police brutality has on the people and their communities. Few research the effects of one of the most controversial and widespread social justice movements has had on the youth of the country. This study will open up the discussion of the effects of this movement to a wider audience of higher academic knowledge.
Mark A. Whatelys article, Gender Differences in Attributions of Blame for Male Rape Victims examines if gender differences exist in blaming a male rape victim and if any theories of victim blame can be applied to the study. In order to collect the data, an intervening cognitive task, and a scenario describing a young man who was arrested outside of a bar where a fight occurred and who was later raped in a police holding cell and the Belief in a Just World Scale were used. It was also predicted that male participants would be more likely to blame the victim than female participants. The results of the study mirrored that of the predictions. Men placed more blame on the victim for the assault than women.
I hope that during my undergraduate years at George Mason University I will be able to investigate the problem affecting many colleges that is date rape drugs. Rape on college campuses is a horrifying epidemic that our country is facing. According to healthresearchfunding.org “Up to 90% of college campus rapes occur through date rape incidents.” Almost every day on the news there is a new story about a woman who was a victim of rape or sexual assault, and most of the time the perpetrator gets away hands free. A major reason why date rape drugs are commonly used is because they are easily slipped in to drinks at college parties and are undetectable by the victim.
