Abstract :

Rape has been widely recognized as a traumatic experience, and issues have been raised that paved the way for feminist campaigns against this form of violence. However, the politics of rape remains debatable on the issue of subjectivity on feminist thinking on violence. Academic feminists were criticized to have exaggerated women's 'victimization' by establishing that women are free.
