What “Rape Culture” Means

Rape culture is real and ongoing. It injures and sometimes kills women and girls, but it also affects men and boys. We are living in a society that tells half the population their manhood relies on being sexually aggressive while telling the other half to sit back and take abuse. This doesn’t create healthy relationships for anyone.

#rapecultureiswhen we say “Boys will be boys.”, “Women are weaker”, “What was she drinking?” “Man up!”. It’s when we objectify women in advertising and through entertainment. It’s when we want to pretend that false rape is a bigger deal than punishing rapists. It’s when men don’t stand up to other men. It’s when women blame other women. Together we can end rape culture.
