Male Attitudes on Rape in a College Setting

Are masculinity and rape connected? This paper presentation discusses Honors Thesis research on male attitudes on rape in a college setting. Through interviewing male students, faculty and staff the research uncovers male opinions about rape and examines whether there is a connection between the way we teach men about masculinity and the way our culture normalizes rape. Audience members will have an opportunity to consider factors that contribute to rape culture and question their preconceived understandings of the issues surrounding rape.
