Victim Blaming in Rape culture Remember the younger days when a younger sibling would get someone into trouble for something that they never did, and rather it was something that the younger sibling did? If that was bothersome to someone when they were younger imagine if that happened now. Surprisingly, this happens when someones older too, but not about simple things such as taking a treat when someone shouldn’t have. Many people blame for crimes that happened to them, and not the genuine criminal. Numerous women are assaulted in America, as well as all around the globe, and the worst part of this crime is that the women are the ones being rebuked for what happened to them.
There is no doubt that a large section of the media getting carried away with the heat of the rage that followed the rape, forgot that laws have to work equally for all rather than take shape according to the popular movement like this case and laws can’t change like this. The unfortunate crime motivated a whole generation to stand together for women’s rights and empowerment and make the transparency between its citizens and government. Many also talked about women rights and equality between men and women and also education rights. Media was covering this case very closely they asked government to answer about women safety, technology use for safety, police patrolling. In a year more than 250000 rape cases get registered in police stations but only few of them get justice but in this case media boosted it by covering it from every corner that’s why it got huge attention, people were even ready to fight with police force.

Rape culture has also changed the meaning of “no”, which in this society can mean “maybe” or “try harder” leaving both people wondering whether consent was actually given.
Yes, they sell, but at what cost? Because the women are showed being submissive and often dressed provocatively, this image is being idealized. The effects can be harmful, resulting into young girls having a negative self-image. Women don’t dare to take the leading role, since this is not the norm in our ‘western’ world. Is this really how we want advertisements to make us feel?
This shows that victims do not have to just necessarily be woman even boys are affected by this, the event may have been for woman awareness but Davis takes the time to address the issue that men can be victims as well. Through more statistics she continues forward and states “If you are a woman of color and you are raped before you reach the age of 18, then you are 66 percent more likely to be sexually assaulted again.Seventy percent of girls who are sex-trafficked are girls of color….It is a billion-dollar industry” (Davis, p.4) this show that usually the victims alongside women and men are people of color, minorities. This information Davis provides gives an insight to what is really happening in America and how America takes a situation filled with tragedy, suffering and makes a business out of it instead of being able to find an end to it.

They are right because yes, here in Malaysia, male rape has never made the headlines and yes, they are wrong because men do get raped by women. The main reason why we have never heard of headlines on this issue is partly because there are no cases reported. Why there are no cases reported?
