Abstract

Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape stands as a unique document of the history, politics, and sociology of rape and the inherent and ingrained inequality of men and women under the law. Susan Brownmiller pulls back the centuries of damaging lies and misrepresentations to reveal how rape has been accepted in all societies and how it continues to profoundly affect women's lives today. The book discusses the consequences of rape in biblical times, rape as an accepted spoil of war, as well as child molestation, marital rape, and date rape (a term Brownmiller coined). [Amazon]
