It is a known cultural difference that men usually dominate the world. There are many times when women are abused that they do not file charges against their assailants. Some of the governing assumptions that strengthen the mainstream explanation of the intimate abuse that many women face are as follows: First, men batter women because they are privileged, physically, financially, and socially; it is under the assumption in this belief that we need not understand the violence behind men’s violence beyond that point of the patriarchal explanation. Second, women stay in abusive relationships because of patriarchy. Third, the criminal justice system is sexist.

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.

In the 1970s rape was widely seen as a sexual act of uncontrollable lust, not an act of violence. Critical to the concept of rape was the concept of women's "chastity." In traditional rape ideology, an "unchaste" (sexually experienced) woman lacked credibility and/or must have "wanted it" or consented. Only white women could be "chaste"; the law presumed that Black and probably other women of color were "unchaste." The historical treatment of rape charges often stemmed from men's extreme distrust of women when the alleged perpetrator was white (Wriggins).

Others will say that they can’t explain it, but they know it when they see it. Emilie Buchwald, the author of Transforming a Rape Culture describes rape culture as “a complex set of beliefs that encourage male sexual aggression and supports violence against women.” The people of a rape culture assume that violence is a fact of life when in reality it is not, and is actually the values and attitudes of a society, which are quite possible to change. Rather than teaching that people shouldn’t rape, they try to teach what to do to make it less likely that a rapist will choose you. The Marshall University Women’s Center explains that “Rape culture is perpetuated through the use of misogynistic language, the objectification of women’s bodies, and the glamorization of sexual violence, thereby creating a society that disregards women’s rights and safety.” America has objectified sex to the point where it’s more about reaching a goal of obtaining sex than it is about intimacy and emotions. According to Becky Lockwood, the associate director at a center for women, this causes people to see sex as a commodity, making them think it is okay to do whatever they deem necessary to acquire it, even if that means violence.
