The link embedded in the subject title of this blog entry is a good introduction into what rape culture is.

As you watch the film, here are some questions to ponder:

How have you experienced rape culture?

Is there a thin line between rape culture and "normal" conceptualizations of sex and sexuality?

What kinds of messages/encounters do you or someone you know receives daily that makes you/him/her feel uncomfortable?

What would a world without rape culture look like?

What does rape culture look like on college campuses?

How can individuals effectively challenge and change rape culture?

What do you personally commit to doing to help change rape culture?
