Rape can be carried out by physical force, coercion, or abuse of authority. It also happens sometimes when a person is incapable of valid consent. Regardless which way it happens and to whom it’s still illegal and punishable by law. A few years ago Congress began to notice Rape inside prisons were more common and decided to do something about it. According to The National Institute of Corrections, “The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 was enacted by Congress
However, statutory rape is consensual sex by two people with age limits. The punishment for statutory rape varies the minimum sentence being a misdemeanor and maximum sentence being a felony, but whatever sentence is given the convicted has to register as a sex offender. How can someone be registered as a sex offender when both people agreed to have sex. What should we do? Due to media, peer pressure, and curiosity many teens and pre-teens are starting to willingly have sex at a younger age.
However it has recently came to question of whether this perception of dangerousness is supported. Is it true that once a sex offender always a sex offender? In this paper I will discuss the evidence about the commonness and nature of sexual offending, characteristics of sex offenders, recidivism rates among different kinds of sex offenders and the support of treatment programs. In most studies the sexual offenders term can be broken down into 3 different classifications. The first group is sexual offenders that commit crimes of sexual violence against adults.
Then it must be associated with the issue of rape. Feminist theory in this circumstance explains how the breakdown of a patriarchal society can cause or inflict rape in the family home and society (Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy, 2009; Bssent & Watts, 2007). Overall rape is not just seen as a private family issue but a societal and worldwide issue. Rape can be defined in many ways, although the two main ways of defining rape is by using a dictionary definition or a legal definition. A dictionary refers to rape as being a ‘crime mainly committed by a male, of forcing another person to have sexual intercourse with them without consent’ (Simpson &Weiner, 2005).
Criminal justice system vs rape victim Victimization , taking into consideration a woman is raped , a victim must endure some form of victimization before an offender is convicted ,the first form is the actual offense ,secondly the police and medical process and thirdly the court hearing including the pre wait and adjournment. Women who are victim of sexual assault are victimize again by the criminal justice system. There is compelling evidence that sexual assault is a serious underreported crime , data taken from the National Crime Victimization Survey which supports this claim. Victims who report the crime and are willing to co-operate with the police are met by an uncooperative or hostile officer who unwillingness to assist the victim.

Obviously, his behaviour of “sexually charged looks and gestures” and “unnecessary touching” such as hugging is a sexual harassment action to women if the women were not willing to. And first, we should confirm this issue that Haddad really had done those things to female staffs and his actions corresponded to the reports from at least 10 women. Sexual harassment cases are hard to confirm because it rarely has witnesses, so a proper investigation should take place to the authenticity of Haddad’s behaviour, If it corresponds to the reports that he allegedly sexually harassed to the female staffs, he have to be terminated. And there are three “progressive discipline policy” that written warnings, suspensions, and determination, the reason I think he should be terminated , not written warnings or suspensions is that he has high level position in the company he number of victims is more than ten, it is a sexual harassment case that by senior management personnel to numbers of female staffs. If he does not be fired, and his behaviour would go beyond the scope of the company’s definition of sexual harassment, then many female staffs would be “legally” harassed.
There are many types of evidence used in determining whether or not a person has been sexually abused: physical, emotional coping mechanisms (good and bad). The question at hand is if Andy Evans raped Melinda Sordino. The answer to that is yes. Specific physical
This may be true, but isn't doing this basically laying the blame on those unfortunate women who have been raped? After all, if they had not gone out, not gone off by themselves around males, they could have prevented their rape. My freshman year, I attended Sweet Briar

A research by Taylor and Francis (2000) establishes that young men seeing such advertisements start viewing women as a means to vent out their sexual aggression leading to rapes and more gender role stereotyping. All these outcomes emphasize the need for raising awareness about the unintended effects on the audiences these advertisements are targeted to. While groups like Advertising Women of New York, GraceNet, and the National Organization of Women have been outspoken and ridiculed use of such ads, research shows a lot more needs to be done. An interesting idea that this knocks on is that if advertisers capitalize on what sells, are these views of showcasing women as sex objects actually a mirror of what the society believes? Does sex in ads principly enhance or hinder advertising processing?
