It relates to our class because we could not possibly have a class about human sexuality and not discuss one of the biggest issues in our society of sexual beings. I agree wholeheartedly with the message this film is presenting to its viewers. I agree that we should all learn how to listen to victims and help in any way we can. As humans we need to take care of each other to benefit society. This film helps make our society a better place by spreading awareness of the pain rape causes its victims.
This is because young men are not taught that they do not have a right to women’s bodies. Rape is not spoken about in most American schools because it is considered a “taboo” topic, that in itself is considered rape culture. In another report in 2009, studies show that only nine percent of women report their sexual assault cases to the authorities (Luna 1). Women get assaulted every day in the US, yet very few come forward to the authorities because they have seen the backlash that almost all other women face when they accuse
Large proportions of news coverage are on crime (Bissler & Conners, 2012). Most news television and newspaper coverage tend to be on crime or deviant behaviour. However, the accuracy of these crime reported by the media are often over-represented. Ditton & duffy, (1983) conducted a research study and found that 46% of media reports covered mostly sexual and violent crime, but in actuality, only 3% of these recorded crimes were legitimate so big disparity between what is real and what is over exaggerated. Bissler & Conners, (2012) stated that personal crimes such as sexual and violent crimes were 36 times more likely to be reported by the media than property, inchoate and statuary crimes.
This study revealed that the Delhi Rape had arguably the most extensive coverage of any rape case in India, which is significant. The globalization of the news cycle played a major role in public debate and demand for a significant response from the government to take immediate action to protect women from sex crimes, but there are many lessons to be learned from this remarkable coverage. It is the case that the sensational aspects of the Delhi Rape occupied centre stage. One rationalization for this is that the primary purpose of any newspaper is to increase circulation. For instance, the attention given to celebrities’ views of the Delhi Rape and the personal story of the victim’s pain and promise struck a chord with readers and, in turn, fulfilled this economic imperative.
A deeply rooted prejudice against people who got involved in sexual crime cases, especially victims, has existed for a long time, which may traumatise victims traumatic and cause them to be reluctant to report the incident to the police (Ward, 1995). Sometimes the situation will be made worse by media
They say that crime news has already become a staple news item, and because of that it is imperative that the media exercises caution when presenting information to its publics (Gruenewald et al., 2009). It should be noted that while their research revolves around homicide, the aspect of how it comes to be newsworthy depending on the offender and victim is an important factor in how it will be presented to the audience. They worked under the assumption that the gender and race of either an offender or a victim are characteristics that raise or lower a news report’s newsworthiness. A study from Geer also shows that aside from criminals, the victims concerned in crimes play a large part in the visual element of crime news. Geer says that these visual elements of the news product depict immediately, dramatically, and often in full colour what it may take several paragraphs to say in words.
According to Coates and Wade (2004) attributing the assault to a psychological disorder to naturalize his behaviour. However, this testimony leads to the idea that it is okay to rape young girls to help men get over the sexual anxiety issues. His responses do not indicate the details of the events on hand, nor the girls’ reactions to the assault. He also conceals his violence by using the word “vice”. On two occasions he said that he uses “sex as a vice” and “loved sex because of the vice at the time”.
But I believe, in what little knowledge I have about rape, that the victim would be withdrawn and depressed at the least. The victim would be so traumatized she would not want to be exposed to anything that would in any way remind her of the abuse. Having articulated that, I was confused with Anna's behavior. She was a rape victim; she needed closure and yet she involved herself in a BDSM scene that was obviously sexual in nature. Was it because she was so broken she could not think logically and used whatever she could to somehow avenge herself?
Sexual abuse and sexual assault are related, many survivors are coming out and there 's always a case on the news where someone has been raped while walking home from school or in another scenario. “Rape culture is not even talking about the reality that many women are sexually assaulted multiple times in their lives” (Melissa, Rape Culture 101). There has been an increase on sexual assaults, and no one is taking action to end these types of attacks. Victims who tend to stay with their partner, or people who were sexually assaulted by an individual stay in the
About 70 percent of India’s 1.2 billion population live in extreme poverty, therefore, they are not educated, causing them to resort to criminal offences in order to get what they need. Statistics show that a rape case gets reported every 22 minutes in India. This is mostly due to the lack of moral education, causing the people to commit such
