Date rape: A feminist analysis

Law and Philosophy 8 (2):217 - 243 (1989)
Abstract
This paper shows how the mythology surrounding <span class='Hi'>rape</span> enters into a criterion of reasonableness which operates through the legal system to make women vulnerable to unscrupulous victimization. It explores the possibility for changes in legal procedures and presumptions that would better serve women's interests and leave them less vulnerable to sexual violence. This requires that we reformulate the criterion of consent in terms of what is reasonable from a woman's point of view.
