Changing 'Rape Culture'

Contributed by Daniel Wald on 02/04/2008 

Students Active For Ending Rape:

An excerpt from Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft:

Changing the Culture

Abuse is the product of a mentality that excuses and condones bullying and exploitation, that promotes superiority and disrespect, and that casts responsibility on the oppressed. All efforts to end the abuse of women ultimately have to return to this question: How do we change societal values so that women's right to live free of insults, invasion, disempowerment, and intimidation is respected?

One way is simply to declare out loud to people in your life that women have these rights unconditionally. Much of modern society remains regrettably unclear on this point. I still hear: "Well, he shouldn't have called her a 'slut,' but she did dance all night with another man." I hear: "He did keep hassling her at her job even when she told him to stay away, but he was heartbroken over their breakup."
