Homework – Sexual Coercion
Reading Material attached –
Option A: After reading the section in the text on wartime rape, write a 1-2 page response paper discussing the following questions:
Why does the incidence of rape tend to increase during times of war? Discuss cultural differences that often lead to the victims of rape being punished or outcast by their local communities. Why do we hear so little about this in the media? How might cultural norms need to change in order to stop “blame the victim” mentality?
Be sure to reference concepts from class (or another academic source) in your response. Your paper will be graded for content, spelling, grammar, and timeliness.
