Reclaiming the Body: Controversies Surrounding Rape Theory

Many popular theories in the United States have been ineffective in their ability to properly address rape and sexual assault as an urgent issue. This presentation examines contesting theories on rape politics, with the consideration of attitudes concerning victimization. Audience members will have an opportunity to ponder current rape laws and the impact these laws have on rape policy. This paper is a precursor to an Honors Thesis that will further explore the controversies surrounding rape theory.
