Overview


First published in 1993, Transforming a Rape Culture has provided a new understanding of sexual violence and its origins in this culture. This groundbreaking work seeks nothing less than fundamental cultural change: the transformation of basic attitudes about power, gender, race, and sexuality.

The editors thoroughly reviewed the book for this new edition, selecting eight new essays that address topics such as rape as war crime, sports and sexual violence, sexual abuse among the clergy, conflict between traditional mores and women's rights in the Asian American and Latin American communities, as well insightful analyses of cyberporn.

The diverse contributors are activists, opinion leaders, theologians, policymakers, educators, and authors of both genders. An excellent text for undergraduate classes in Women's Studies, Family Sociology or Criminal Justice, the book is being reissued on the 10th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act.

A rape culture is a society that accepts sexual violence as the norm. In this groundbreaking new work, a diverse group of opinions lays the foundation for change in basic attitudes about power, gender, race, and sexuality--for a future without sexual violence. National tour.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The contributors to this invaluable sourcebook share the conviction that rape is epidemic because our society encourages male aggression and tacitly or overtly supports violence against women. Cumulatively, these 34 essays by such figures as Gloria Steinem, Andrea Dworkin, Ntozake Shange, Michael Kimmel and Louise Erdrich situate rape on a continuum extending from sexist language to pornography, sexual harassment in schools and the workplace, wife battering and date and marital rape. Most of the selections were written for this volume. Highlights include a proposal to make rape a presidential election issue, an analysis of the churches' ambivalent response to societal violence, guidelines for raising boys to view themselves as nurturing, nonviolent fathers and inspirational visions of personal or institutional change. Buchwald is publisher/editor of Milkweed, Fletcher an English professor at North Hennepin Community College in Minnesota and Roth edits the feminist quarterly, Hurricane Alice. (Oct.)

    A must-read for everyone, especially young men and women!

    The only way to truly address--and put an end to--our rape culture is to talk about it. The shame and silence surrounding the abuse that touches us ALL in one way or another needs to come to an end. This book takes a hard look at difficult topics told in the voices of women and men from all walks of life who are working toward a common goal.

    A call for questions

    'Transforming a Rape Culture' will call you to question your upbringing, your socialization, and yourself. It provides the reader with many short essays that cover a variety of important topics. It prompted questions for me, which I believe any good book should do. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to question their life.
