5.0 out of 5 starsA gripping read.12 Nov 1999
By Maria Bevacqua - Published on Amazon.com
Benedict's thought-provoking book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the myths of rape that continue to pervade our culture. Benedict places media coverage of sex crimes into historical perspective and casts light on our understanding of sexual violence and gender relations. This is a smart, readable book.

Ms. Benedict has written a remarkably thorough, well-researched, informative book that still avoids being dry or preachy. Anyone with an interest in media, crime, women's issues, or cultural criticism in general would do well to read this book.

I learned a great deal reading this book. I had read it years ago, and just picked it up again. It really dives deep and explores how the media handles high profile rape cases.
