About

Overview

Rape culture is the normalization of sexual assault and degradation of victims. Things such as catcalls and explicit song lyrics may seem harmless, but they contribute to an atmosphere where people, particularly women, are regarded as objects. This makes it easier for rapists to justify their actions to themselves. Readers are introduced to these and other crucial points about this important social issue and the rising level of awareness surrounding it. Relatable text, discussion questions, and informative fact boxes teach young adults what rape culture is and how they can fight it to make society safer for everyone.
