Transcript of Rape Culture

The feminist issue of Rape Culture
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
1. What is rape culture and how is the idea of it presented within society?

2. What defines consent in Australian rape cases? How is rape culture viewed in the eyes of the law?

3. How rape victims are denied justice? What needs to be changed?

'Rape Culture' is the normalization, excuse, tolerance and even supporting rape and sexual abuse.
Inquiry Questions
What is 'Rape Culture'?
How is it represented in our culture?

What should define consent
Consent is:
Consent is a voluntary, sober, enthusiastic, creative, wanted, informed, mutual, honest, and verbal agreement

Consent is a process, which must be asked for every step of the way

Consent is never implied and cannot be assumed, even in the context of a relationship.

A person who is intoxicated cannot legally give consent.

What consent does NOT look like

Wearing 'sexy' or provocative clothing, accepting a ride, accepting a drink

Not saying no- drunk, drugged, mentally incapable

If she does not answer she still has not given consent.

Not verbally saying no (crying, pushing)
Victim Blaming
Slut shaming
Cat calling
Rape Jokes
We are taught a young age that no does not mean no
How are rape victims denied justice?
Legal definition of sexual assault and rape
The law states that a person is unable to give consent when:
Asleep or unconscious
Intoxicated, under the influence of drugs
Unable to understand what they are consenting to
Intimidated, pressured or threatened
Held against their will
They give consent to the person being in a position of trust
Victimization (deserved it because drunk, wearing 'provocative clothing', asking for it)
Made to feel unsafe in a court of law
Automatically assumed they are telling lies
Told they should have enjoyed it
Slut Shaming
Slut Shaming is where any individual insults someone by calling them a slut because of their clothing, their actions or how much sex they have had
Cat Calling
The feminist issue of rape culture
“But it’s just harmless flattery, why do you have to be such a Feminazi about a guy trying to pay you a compliment"

We are taught at a young age that no does not mean no
What needs to be changed in the perception of rape victims who are seeking justice?
If a woman has [the right to an abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on to a woman? At least the rapists pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t [in most cases] result in anyone’s death.
Even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape it is something that God intended to happen. (Richard Mourdock)
Rape is kind of like the weather. If it’s inevitable just relax and enjoy it. (Clayton Williams)
