Rape in the Media 

“The topic of rape is so hedged about with an uneasy mix of rhetoric, rage and pain that we ignore the facts about it. It is one of the most continually and frantically rewritten narratives there are. Yet the language we use to talk and write about it is full of gaps and awkward absences, the stories we try to tell are still overlaid by public narratives that are both privately and publicly endorsed and circulated by the media and other communicative bodies.” Via RapeCrisis.Org
