This study of American sexual culture and the politics of acquaintance rape identifies the sexual stereotypes that continue to obstruct justice and diminish women. Beginning with an account of the St. John's rape case, the author refers to other British and American landmark rape cases to explain how, with the exception of earliest Colonial times, rape has been a crime notable for placing the woman on trial.
