Summary In late 2017 the #MeToo movement went viral, opening up an explosive conversation about rape culture around the globe. In the US, someone is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds. More than 320,000 Americans over the age of twelve are sexually assaulted each year. One in thirty-three American men will be sexually assaulted or raped in his lifetime. Yet only 3 percent of rapists ever serve time in jail. Keyser explores the patriarchal constructs that support rape culture. The keys to dismantling them: redefine healthy manhood and sexuality, believe victims, improve social and legal systems and workplace environments, evaluate media with a critical eye, and stand up to speak out. -- adapted from info
