Womens Studies Freedman

22 Jul 2017

Rape has been constructed, and defined, differently across cultures and history. Depending on the context of a culture, rape has variously been defined as a violation against family property and a violation of an individual woman’s rights. In addition, rape has been constructed as both an expression of sexual desire and, partially through the work of feminists, as an expression of power. These constructions are not necessarily mutually exclusive; they exist concurrently to varying degrees in most societies. The construction of rape as a crime against family property “is a legacy of patriarchal societies that contained women’s sexuality within the family for the purpose of producing legitimate heirs” (279-280). In this construction, raping an unmarried virgin is punishable, but only because the woman is now unmarriageable. Similarly, raping a married woman was a crime not against the woman, but against her husband, or “owner”. While this allowed virgins and wives a certain degree of protection, “presumptions of sexual availability entitled elite men to engage in nonconsensual sex with working-class, slave, and native women” (281). The construction of rape as an expression of uncontrollable sexual desire also allows for the protection of only certain women from rape. Since women are seductresses who constantly tempt men sexually, and men are base animals driven by lust, a woman can almost never be raped; by her very nature she has invited the rape.

The American Government: 1865 to Present

22 Jul 2017

Perhaps it can be said that the strength of the United States of America, as a nation, has always been temporary, in that it is dependent on the capability and proficiency of the President in office. Thus it is more apparent in democracies, where a change in leadership occurs more frequent, and often, much too soon.
