Violence

Hello,

I am currently doing an essay for my class on the way the Feminist movement made rape an issue, what their demands were, why and how they were achieved. Comparing and contrasting Canada and United States.

Thank you,

Nikky

 

I have actually just written a bit about feminism and the rape issue, putting it into some historical context.

You can find that in Grassroots: A field Guide for feminist Activism. But mostly I reference the work of Diane Rosenfeld who is at the Harvard Law School -- she would be a great resource -- as would the group SAFER -- a new student group that is taking on the issue. And of course RAINN has some information. Also Transforming a Rape Culture -- a book published in the mid 90s has just been re-released with updates.

That might be a good place to find more history.

Good luck,

-- Amy
