Abstract

This study covers rape literature and materials from January 1987 to November 1992. The focuses are on the definition of rape, history of rape, incidence of rape, theories of rape, coping mechanisms of rape, and prevention of rape. The central finding of this study indicates that women, for the most part, are not as passive as in yester years. Today women are quick to report a rape incident. Although they are a product of what is called the partriachal society, they are in charge of their own lives.
