On Rape

Germaine Greer
'Sexual assault does not diminish; relations between the sexes do not improve. There has to be a better way.' Germaine Greer
It's time to rethink rape. Centuries of different approaches to rap as inflicted by men on women have got us nowhere.

In On Rape Germaine Greer argues there has to be a better way.
