Rape Culture 2-Pack

Program #BANV001-EHRB001.

2 CDs

First program: Victoria Banyard - Sexual Violence

Sexual violence occurs from New York to New Delhi and from Denver to Durban. It wasn't that long ago when even mentioning the subject was taboo. The stigma and shame were overwhelming. Help lines, counseling and rape crisis centers did not exist. In some countries, legal and cultural changes have made reporting easier. But in parts of Africa, West and South Asia, where patriarchy is deeply rooted, survivors of attacks are often blamed and ostracized. Sexual violence takes on many forms. But its underlying purpose is the expression of power and domination over the person assaulted. Take the case of the man in Ohio who imprisoned and repeatedly raped three women over a period of years. During war and civil unrest rape of women and of men is often used as a weapon. Sexual violence in prisons is widespread.

Second program: Barbara Ehrenreich - Violence & Militarism

In this powerful and persuasive presentation, Barbara Ehrenreich connects the deep strains of violence and militarism that are embedded in our culture. Domestic violence has its counterpart in international affairs. U.S. foreign policy, Ehrenreich contends, has much in common with the LAPD. Women, people of color and the poor are the main victims of Bush's New World Order.
