Revisiting the Cultural Scaffolding of Rape (Paperback)Nicola Gavey (author)
- Coming soon
Expanded and updated with a new chapter and extensive critical commentary, the revised edition of this award-winning book combines an overview of the existing literature on rape with an analysis of recent research to examine the psychological and cultural implications of contemporary sexual violence. Just Sex? argues that feminist theory on sexual victimization has gone both too far and not far enough. It presents the reader with a challenging and original perspective on the issues of rape, sex and the body, incorporating subjects including:
rape as a social problem
sexism, misogyny, and social media
the social constructionism of sex, subjectivity and the body
heterosexuality under the microscope
sexual violence within LGBTQ relationships and communities
This book succeeds in making a valuable contribution to feminist and social contructionist work on rape that will be of interest to those studying psychology, gender studies, cultural studies, and sociology.
