Most of the time, females are disregarded for being able to be a sexual predator just for the fact that they are women. Females are not seen as powerful enough to be able to commit sexual offense. They are seen as It is also assumed by society that if a female commits a sex crime that it was wanted by the victim because older females are seen as someone to try and seduce. Also, males are easily able to be tried for sexual assault crimes because of how the law explains sexual assault. These laws can be tricky to apply to females because of the fact that females cannot “penetrate” someone else
Sex trafficking is a major issue in the world and people often overlook the fact that it can be an issue in the most modern and advanced first world countries. This is the modern term for slavery of people for purposes including forced sex and labor. Sex trafficking is one of the most exclusive and most advanced types of slavery and is often gone unseen or unnoticed. This problem can cause many people to have low self-esteem and problems with their health. The low self-esteem is often caused because the people are raised or built to understand that they have no worth and that they are meant for nothing but to be raped and to do work without pay.
How much did she drink and was she giving mixed signals is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you are told that someone was raped. In reality, when woman say no there should be no other contributing factors that allowed her to be sexually violated. Many people consider most rapist are strangers, and this is simply not true. In rape cases, family members, close friends, or someone you have met before are more likely to commit rape. In the book it states “rape is a compliment” and “you fat whores would be lucky to even get raped by someone”.
But in today’s world the laws have changed and too many victims are coming out, and some are afraid to speak to up. Ever since Bill Cosby had been accused of drugging multiple women, there are other women that are coming out and accusing other celebrities of sexual harassment. The narrator J.T. O’ Donnell Also suggest that “Learning how to work with coworkers without the risk of getting accused of sexual harassment is not hard” (Donell). When females are in a work environment, they must be cautious and be able to conclude themselves, so they want fall victim of sexual
Another reason for the their fear may be because many of them participated in prostitution before they became victims which was viewed as a victimless crime in which they would be arrested. Victims were always on high security and if they use a cell phone/telephone or try to reach out to the police they will be punished. A lot of them have problems even trusting the police because commonly the law enforcement is corrupted and is being bribed by the
“Although concerning sexual practices between adults and children have existed throughout history and across cultures, whether such behavior was conceived of and defined as ‘abuse’ has been dependent on the societal values of the particular period” (Denov, 2004). In today’s society, sex offending has become an increasingly, concerning phenomenon that individuals must become more aware of. Although generally regarded as a male phenomenon, over time, female perpetrators have become equally important as male perpetrators. Due to the lack of public awareness, female sexual predators go unreported. As a result, society must become more aware of female sexual perpetrators, as many incidents of females assaulting both young men and women have gone unreported for some time.
Despite social progress, violation of women's rights continues and is widely known to be due to gender differences in mainly the form of abuse rape and sexual harassment. Most often it is difficult to describe a situation or an incident of violence. Occasionally there is the possibility of abuse taking place but rarely recognized. This very often happens in Cyprus since the media do not choose to report incidents like the abuse of a maid. One of the main ways that you can perceive the abuse of a person is firstly to identify that both the physical or mental integrity of themselves and their freedom have been violated.
Broken Window Theory, which states that if there is a broken window and the breakers go scot free, then others would be encouraged to break windows too. This is how so many youngsters ended up as criminals in New York City, making the public to be always edgy and ready to flee. In Leslie Bell’s “Hard To Get: Twenty-Something Women and the Paradox of Sexual Freedom”, the author describes how women a lot of women fear expressing their sexuality openly for fear of being labelled names in the male-dominated society. This is a result of the same environmental limitations that prevented New Yorkers from speaking out against the crimes, making many people to think that it was the “new normal”. Leslie Bell notes that “young women hear advice across the self-help spectrum which admonishes them to pretend to be independent to get into a not-so-serious relationship in their twenties, but expects them to be engaged and ready to be married by 30 years (page 31).” This one way through which the environment manipulates women’s
The majority of the people in the world, though, never like to hear that someone has been murdered, just as Mary and many other “unfortunates” were. I see this issue of crimes against prostitutes not being cared about as a result of the media, which I guess at the time of the play, would be the newspaper. Crimes against prostitutes are never reported like they are for other victims of the same crime, I think because the crimes are against criminals, prostitutes. This is a very hard topic to come to terms with. Personally, a crime committed against anybody is terrible.
I could assume that she would appreciate this story greatly, since the gender-role of the decision making has flipped especially. It is very rare that a king would ever give his wife, the queen, the full authority of making a decision this major. I also enjoyed the irony on how the knight’s punishment was practically the opposite of the crime he committed. He raped a woman, giving no disregard to consent nor what maiden wanted or desired and his punishment how was to search for what women truly want most in the world. Being in a more patriarchal society, it shows that the majority of men didn’t really notice their status over their females since the idea of women wanting power was unthought of until he was told by the older lady.
