Frontline Knowledge: Rape

"Probably the most outstanding characteristic of the act of rape is that its almost exclusively committed by men against women. For this reason we consider rape a political act committed by one group or class against another. We do not see it as an individual problem, but as a problem shared by all women." Washington DC Rape Crisis Centre
