The reason why I choose this topic is because as an African Canadian, University student, and a young woman I am able to see the issues that are happening in today world about sexual violence and see how relates to me. This paper will allow me to have a better understand how society views sexual violence and what is being done about it. Though, there are many laws and regulations, having an understanding of how a victim is viewed in a justice system and how our culture has influenced sexual violence.
Central Research Questions/Problems
In this research paper, I will be looking about how sexual violence is portrayed through the lenses of class and race. Knowing that these two factors place a role in many other social issues and knowing that there may be a notion about certain class or race when is come to sexual violence. Secondly, I will be looking at the rape culture and how the rape culture has perpetuated the notion of sexual violence. How the rape culture has influence many of the young people to view sexual violence as an issues that they ‘do for fun’ or to fit in into the normative ways of their sexuality. Lastly, I will be looking at consent in sexual violence. Understanding that consent plays a huge role in sexual violence and in many cases of sexual violence happen without a woman’s consent. Understanding how it also affects the young men who are in the situations where they sexual abuse a young woman, especially in a college and university setting.
