Sexual Assault

Rape in America

Don’t forget we have a new giveaway going on here at FHO. Just answer the question to be in the running for a copy of Medical Response to Child Sexual Abuse.

My friends over at the Oregon Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force turned me on to an interesting post over at the Ms blog: Rape in America. It’s a tie-in with their current campaign to get the FBI and DOJ to change the definition of rape, as reported in the Uniform Crime Report, so it is more reflective of what rape looks like in the US (e.g., not just sexual violence with force).

I have to admit, I’m feeling a little ambivalent about their efforts on this front. Am I the only one? I can’t really pin point exactly what’s bothering me about their campaign…
