Getting the conversation started between men about how to stop rape culture

Laura Serafine

A male author discusses his realization that every guy is part of rape culture. This is a long read, but I think there are some good points. The author talks about "using body language that will make a woman feel like they are not threatened in public". I don't think that body language exists yet, but I like that the conversation is starting. Women and men should realize that rape culture is a common enemy. We should unite against it, and do everything we can to learn from each other.

    I appreciate that he emphasizes in the article that "the words 'rape culture' aren't the problem. The reality they describe is the problem." This piece made me realize that many people may be far from recognizing that the problem exists, let alone acknowledging that they are part of it. A much-needed reminder, I think. Thank you for sharing.
