Treating rape only as a “single event” perpetrated by a single sick individual separate from the wider culture of violence, militarism, and gender discrimination is, first, failure to understand the complexity of this social rape and F u nc t ions of R a p e 19 the intension of the perpetrating side and, second, failure to accord the women the protection and the victims justice.
