Sexual violence has been so prominent in recent years that the feminist term "rape culture" has finally entered the mainstream. But what, exactly, is it? And how do we change it? In Asking for It, Kate Harding answers those questions in the same blunt, no-nonsense voice that has made her a powerhouse feminist blogger. Combining in-depth research with practical knowledge, Asking for It makes the case that 21st-century America supports rapists more effectively than victims.

As a feminist and the author of a book on rape culture, I could reasonably be expected to lead the calls for Al Franken to step down, following allegations that he forced his tongue down a woman’s throat, accompanied by a photo of him grinning as he moves in to grope her breasts while she sleeps. It’s disgusting. But I don’t believe resigning from his position is the only possible consequence, or the one that’s best for American women.
"I’m a Feminist. I Study Rape Culture. And I Don’t Want Al Franken to Resign." is from the November 17, 2017 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Kate Harding and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
