This entry discusses rape and sexual violence – its definitions, prevalence, sequelae, major etiological theories, and how it can be reduced. One of the most significant etiological explanations for rape is feminist. Feminist theories content that rape is a part of a rape‐supportive culture, a societal understanding of gender relations based on sexism, hegemonic masculinity, widespread gender inequality, and the socialization of children into traditional gender roles. It is argued that measures, which may equalize men and women along economic, sociopolitical, and cultural lines may help alleviate the burden of rape.
