Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person 's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abusive of authority, or against a person who is incapable of giving valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, has an intellectual disability or is below the legal age of consent. The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault.

What is a social issue? It is kind of an aspect of the society that people are anxious about and would like it to be replaced. Many people may tell that rape is a personal issue but is it really a personal issue? Rape crime is one of the darkest parts of the society and it may be a single crime but it makes people hold down their lives with so much fear that it cannot be called a personal issue as it is related to the society too and it is indeed affecting the society in many scandalous ways. One rape incident can bring about fear in the hearts of a thousand other people, thus affecting society.

Rape takes place for many different reasons. It totally varies from person to person, as in rapists to rapists. One such reason is an anger rape. This is when the rapists’ goal is to degrade, demean and wound their victim. This maybe because the rapist has any conflict against the victim and the person thinks that raping is the ultimate crime they can execute against the victim.
