Whose rapes matter?

In this seminar Rebecca Helman, a Visiting Commonwealth Researcher at the University of Edinburgh, will draw upon autoethnographic and interview data to address the question of ‘whose rapes matter’? She will explore the processes by which certain instances of sexual violence come to be regarded as more damaging and abhorrent than others, and therefore the processes by which some ‘rape victims’ are positioned as more deserving of care and support.
