As the Affirmative Consent Movement (Yes Means Yes) takes shape, there have been a number of topics that have taken on increased awareness in our everyday news, all over the world. Thankfully, one subject that we've seen explored in greater depth is the idea of 'rape culture'. It's important that we address this issue, and educate individuals about recognizing and addressing the mistaken norms of rape culture where we find it. Below is a running feed of our news curation on this subject, and the different ways society is addressing this issue.
"Rape culture is a term that was coined by feminists in the United States in the 1970's. It was designed to show the ways in which society blamed victims of sexual assault and normalized male sexual violence. Many feminists have provided great definitions of what rape culture is and how it plays out everyday." WAVAW
