Charming and intriguing. They don't make fiction for middle-readers like this any more.

Some of these writers seem to assume that all men are abusive and sexist.

Many of them fail to distinguish between violence and counterviolence.

Most of them sincerely believe that simply by changing hearts and minds we can end rape forever.

The groundbreaking Transforming a Rape
Culture was first published in 1993, and this
revised and updated edition is just as powerful
as the first. The book gathers writing from a
diverse and wide reaching range of authors,
including bell hooks, Michael Kimmel, Carol J
Adams, Gail Dines and Andrea Dworkin, with
their astute analyses of the origins of sexual

oppressive nature of sexual violence. While
this sounds bleak, the authors manage to
instill hope into the reader, hope that once the
origins of sexual violence are fully understood

contains new writing on Internet pornography,
the role of sport in sexual violence, rape as
an instrument of war and domestic violence in
immigrant communities.
