Anushay’s Point: We Must Confront Rape Culture

July wrapped up with another taping of PBS’ To The Contrary, and one of the most shocking things about this episode was that Anne Stone and I actually agreed on an issue: domestic violence.


Washington State is starting to issue victims alerts when their abuser buys a gun, and with the gun control debate in the U.S. stalled the way it is, a simple text message system could save a woman’s life.


I stated that abusers should not be able to buy guns in the first place, and when women purchase guns for self-defense against their abusers they sometimes wind up in jail themselves.


We also talked about climate change and victimology which I truly found to be offensive. When it comes to violence against women, especially sexual violence and assault, it is rape culture that we need to confront.
