The anomaly surrounding Megan is that she spoke up against her attacker and her claim was not taken seriously and as a result there were no consequences for the alleged offender.

In society, it is automatically assumed that people want justice, equality and stride for freedom. Despite that, when a group of people are put together; they turn into a stack of dominos. Although they do not realize it, when someone of higher social class creates a certain stigma against a person or group, the rest will eventually follow through despite personally knowing them. It is the act of bias and influence that hinder the sight of many. " Bigotry or prejudice in any form is more than a problem; it is deep-seated evil within our society" a quote from Judith Light.
In the novel, Mayella is a woman, which also gives her power. In the first place, her being a woman was an advantage over Tom.

People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10).

The little girl could not take the psychological pressure that was brought upon her, and so she gave her own life to avoid it. This shows that the sex trafficking industry can mentally break people, and the ones who get out alive from the brothels are usually traumatized for the rest of their lives. After finally being freed, “Some girls who are trafficked choose to remain prostitutes for life because their home villages will not accept them” (Ruffins). This is also shown in the book Sold, with Monica not being accepted back to her village after returning.
Janine admits to being gang-raped at fourteen as well as to the abortion that followed. Rather than expressing sympathy, the Aunt’s make the girls chant that Janine is at fault for being raped. The girls taunt Janine, chanting that the rape was her fault, that she led the men on, and that she was raped as a lesson. After two weeks in a row of telling this story at the testifying session, the girls made Janine truly believe that the assault was her fault, and the chanting was no longer necessary as Janine began to state the words herself. “’It was my fault”, she says.
From the start of human existence people were destined to be different whether it be by race, gender or color. However history has shown that this uniqueness has lead to the judgement of these attributes not their celebration. The law should not agree with this, but sadly it does. Human race has not yet gotten past this hump of legality, but they must in order to keep living in peace. Society as a whole should not feel the discrimination that they do, but rather the commemorator of them.
Sexual Assault is a horrible problem in the United States. On average, 1 in 5 women in the United States has reported being raped at least once in her life. In addition, 78.7% of women reported that their rape occurred before they turned 25, and 40.4% reported that their rape happened before they turned 18 (Itzin 2430). The sexual objectification of women in our society contributes to rape culture that allows sexual assault to happen. In addition, rape victims often do not report their rape due to victim blaming, which is also a part of rape culture.
