Asking For It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture - And What We Can Do About It

by Kate Harding - £12.99  The Perseus Books Group (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780738217024 | ISBN 10: 0738217026

Every seven minutes, someone in America commits a rape. And whether that's a football star, beloved celebrity, elected official, member of the clergy, or just an average Joe (or Joanna), there's probably a community eager to make excuses for that person.
 
In Asking for It, Kate Harding combines in-depth research with an in-your-face voice to make the case that twenty-first-century America supports rapists more effectively than it supports victims. Drawing on real-world examples of what feminists call "rape culture" - from politicos' revealing gaffes to institutional failures in higher education and the military - Harding offers ideas and suggestions for how we, as a society, can take sexual violence much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused.
