Every seven minutes, someone in America commits a rape. And whether that’s a football star, beloved celebrity, elected official member of the clergy, or just an average Joe (or Joanna), there’s probably a community eager to make excuses for that person.

In Asking for It, Kate Harding combines in-depth research with an in-your-face voice to make the case that twenty-first-century America supports rapists more effectively than victims. Drawing on real-world examples of what feminists all „rape culture“ – from politicos‘ revealing gaffes to instituional failures in higher education and the military – Harding offers ideas and suggestions for how we, as a society, can take sexual violence much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused.
