  • A Victim Of The Double Rape - 1,601 words
    A Victim of the Double Rape There is an old saying that goes "behind every strong man is a strong woman". This proverb can be used to describe the legacy of Hernando Cortes and his conquest of Mexico. Like the proverb, he had someone behind him who aided in his goals of dominance. The woman was Dona Marina, otherwise known as La Malinche. Her beauty and intelligence made her into one of the most hated and influential women in Mexico's history. According to Clifford Krauss, "La Malinche is for the most part portrayed as the perpetrator of Mexico's original sin" (110). La Malinche was a victim of a "double rape" (Todorov 49). Her destiny was determined at birth. As a child growing up in native ...

Marina pretended to accept the offerbut put the old woman off until night, warning her that Cortes' troops were on guard and would hear them. Marina then pumped the woman for more informationThe woman's husband, it turned out, was a Tlaxcalan captain who had, along with others, received gifts from the wily Moctezuma to help ambush Cortes (Adams 8).

  • Adrienne Richs Rape - 713 words
    Adrienne Richs "Rape" Have you ever been in a situation where you had something horrible happen in your life that you needed to do something about, but in order to do something about it, you had to confront the problem and that caused you pain and more troubles? I believe that to be the underlying conflict in Adrienne Richs "Rape". The main character who the speaker is talking to first is a woman who has been sexually violated. She is a victim of a heinous and very private, embarrassing crime. The officer that she has reported her situation to is a policeman who patrols her area and who her family knows and trust.

  • Alexander Popes The Rape Of The Lock - 1,658 words
    Alexander Pope's The Rape Of The Lock The Rape of the Lock: Serious Stuff Alexander Pope's mock heroic epic The Rape of the Lock appears to be a light subject addressed with a satiric tone and structure. Pope often regards the unwanted cutting of a woman's hair as a trivial thing, but the fashionable world takes it seriously. Upon closer examination Pope has, perhaps unwittingly, broached issues worthy of earnest consideration. The Rape of the Lock at first glance is a commentary on human vanity and the ritual of courtship. The poem also discusses the relationship between men and women, which is the more substantial matter in particular. Pope examines the oppressed position of women. Infring ...

  • Anne Finches Opposition To The Rape Of The Lock - 855 words
    Anne Finches Opposition To The Rape Of The Lock Anne Finch's Opposition to The Rape of the Lock The Restoration Period (1660-1700) was a period of social, political and philosophical turmoil, which laid the foundation for future centuries.

  • Aquaintance Rape - 923 words
    Aquaintance Rape There are many types of rape. A very important type of rape is acquaintance rape. According to a researcher named R. Lance Shotland, there may be five kinds of acquaintance rape: beginning, early, relational, rape within sexually active couples (RSCA) with battery and RSAC without battery. They are described both in terms of length of the relationship and previous sexual activity. The first type of acquaintance rape is the beginning date rape. This form of rape happens within the first few dates while the couple is still getting to know each other. College students usually do not have sex on the first couple of dates, so the biggest cause is most likely not miscommunication. ...

  • As In The Rape Cases Previously Studied, The Victims That Are Involved Sexual Harassment And Sexual Discrimination Are Subjec - 966 words
    As in the rape cases previously studied, the victims that are involved sexual harassment and sexual discrimination are subjected to an array of defenses created by their employers. All to often these "rational"explanations are under the guise of traditional gender ideologies, which attempt to explain "natural" sexual behavior and/or "natural" gender differences. As in the rape cases, the use of ridged gender roles often play a silent through critical role in shaping the courts decisions on sexual discrimination and sexual harassment cases. As will be demonstrated in the cases of Lanigan vs. Bartlett, Smith v. Eastern Airlines Co., EEOC v. Sears and Chambers v. Omaha Girls Club, a traditional ...

  • Character Analysis Of Estelle In Margaret Atwoods Rape Fantasies - 1,236 words
    Character Analysis of Estelle in Margaret Atwood's "Rape Fantasies" Anyway Estelle is the only thoroughly developed character in Margaret Atwood's "Rape Fantasies." Though she is the narrator and quite thoughtful of the ideas and reactions of the story's supporting players, it is her almost obsessive preoccupation with a singular topic that actually prompts her to fully illustrate her own ideas and reactions, drawing a character far more compelling than any of the men or women she will attempt to describe. Estelle begins her story and ruminations swiftly. She considers rape, how rape has recently been treated like a new scourge, and how essays and tips on rape prevention have become somethin ...

    ... that she really wanted sex even though she resisted, or that she agreed to sex at the time but changed her mind after the fact. By contrast, the typical rape victim claims that she did not agree to sex and that the act was forced upon her against her will. Recently, a controversial case has arisen in the public media which highlights the stance generally taken by the accused rapist and his victim. William Kennedy Smith, a member of the famous Kennedy family, was accused of having raped a woman at his Palm Beach home. He had met the woman at a bar and she had apparently agreed to go with him to his house. The woman claimed that William Kennedy Smith forced her to have sex with him once th ...

    Date Rape Drugs Health Promotion : Date Rape Drugs The issue of substances used to facilitate date rape is one that deserves a great deal of attention.

It is also important that people know how to keep a look out for drinks that have been tampered with so that they can take the appropriate measures to make sure that these drinks are not consumed. For these reasons, I believe that a health promotion program needs to be planned and implemented to addres ...

    Rape Rape Essay written by Dan Esca Here is a number for you: 354,670. That is the number of women that were raped in 1995 (RAINN 1). That is equivalent of one woman being raped every two minutes (RAINN 1). Want more numbers? In the last two years, more than 787,000 women were the victim of a rape or sexual assault (RAINN 1). And one more statistic that might get your attention is that only 37% of rapes are reported to the authorities (RAINN 2). Fortunately, there are ways to drastically reduce these numbers.

  • Rape Of Nanking - 1,797 words
    Rape Of Nanking Chapter One The main point in chapter one was to give us a history of the Japanese people, and to rationalize why the Japanese army went to such extremes in Nanking. She uses examples of training rituals used by the Japanese army like extreme teaching procedures and terrible school conditions in Japan. I don't think she was trying to make an excuse for the Japanese army but she wanted to site a possible reason for the abuse. She talks about Japanese history and gives us lots of background on the Japanese people before the horrifying occurrence in Nanking. The audience she has tried to communicate to is the intellectual western society who has possibly not heard or knows littl ...
