Marital rape

  1. 1. MARITAL RAPE BY : GROUP 1 SITI FATIMAH ATIKAH NOREHAN AMIRAFAZIRA KIU
  2. 2. MARITAL RAPE • Marital rape is any unwanted sexual acts by a spouse or ex-spouse, committed without consent and/or against a person's will, obtained by force, or threat of force, intimidation, or when a person is unable to consent.
  3. 3. TYPES OF MARITAL RAPE • 1. Battering rape: ▫ In battering rape, women experience both physical and sexual violence in the relationship and they experience this violence in various ways. • 2. Force-only rape: ▫ In what is called force-only rape, husbands use only the amount of force necessary to coerce their wives • 3. Obsessive rape: ▫ Other women experience what has been labeled as sadistic or obsessive rape
  4. 4. KEY FACTS ABOUT MARITAL RAPE LAW AND THE REALITIES OF MARITAL RAPE. • Until 1976, rape laws in all 50 states contained a Marital Rape Exemption specifically to prevent husbands who raped their wives from being charged with a crime BEFORE. • As of 1996, only 17 states and the District of Columbia had abolished this exemption completely. • While all 50 U.S. states have laws against marital rape, 33 of the states consider marital rape a lesser crime than other types of rape–typically they charge the attacker with spousal abuse or battery instead of rape. http://rapeinfo.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/marital- rape/
  5. 5. • Studies show that marital rape is the most common type of rape. Ten to 14 percent of all completed rapes are committed by husbands or ex-husbands, and in keeping with rape reporting statistics nationwide, experts believe this is an underestimation of the actual incidence of marital rape. • It wasn’t until 1993 that marital rape nationally became a crime in the United States. http://rapeinfo.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/marital- rape/
  6. 6. ISSUE AND ACT IN MALAYSIA • JULAI 19,20O6 • Suami tidak boleh rogol isteri ▫ KUALA LUMPUR: Seorang suami yang mencederakan isterinya, walaupun hanya dari segi mental, termasuk menyebabkan "stress" atau tekanan, bagi mendapatkan hubungan seks, boleh didakwa dan dipenjara tidak melebihi lima tahun. ▫ Menteri Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri Datuk Seri Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad berkata tindakan terhadap suami itu boleh diambil mengikut Seksyen 375A iaitu satu seksyen baru yang diperkenalkan dalam Rang Undang-undang Kanun Keseksaan (Pindaan) 2004. http://mstar.com.my/berita/cerita.asp?file=/2006/7/19/TERKINI/Mutakhir/Suami_tid ak_boleh_rogol_isteri&sec=mstar_berita
  7. 7. Act for marital rape in Malaysia • Rogol isteri dipenjara 10 tahun, 4 kali sebatan KUALA TERENGGANU 17 Jun 2007. • Mahkamah Sesyen di sini hari ini menjatuhkan hukuman penjara 10 tahun dan empat kali sebatan terhadap seorang lelaki atas tuduhan merogol isterinya. Hakim Zainal Azman Abdul Aziz membuat keputusan itu terhadap Zainal Muda, 38, berdasarkan Seksyen 375 Kanun Keseksaan selepas mengambil kira perintah ex-parte oleh Mahkamah Tinggi Syariah yang mengarahkan supaya pasangan itu dipisahkan serta tidak melakukan hubungan seks sebelum kejadian berlaku. Mengikut kertas pertuduhan, Zainal dari Kampung Durian Mas, Manir di sini dituduh merogol isterinya di rumah Lot 16061, Kampung Hulu Takir, Kuala Terengganu kira-kira pukul 7.45 pagi pada 10 Mac 2005.
  8. 8. Act for wife rape in India • 2007 India Law Journal • Section 375, the provision of rape in the Indian Penal Code (IPC), has echoing very archaic sentiments, mentioned as its exception clause ▫ “Sexual intercourse by man with his own wife, the wife not being under 15 years of age, is not rape.” Section 376 of IPC provides punishment for rape.
  9. 9. Act for marital rape • PTI | Feb 2, 2013, 06.28 PM IST • NEW DELHI: Marital rape will also attract stringent punishment under the ordinance proposed by the Centre. Sex by husband with his wife during separation will lead up to seven years of imprisonment, according to the proposed ordinance on anti-rape law approved by theUnion Cabinet on Friday. • "We have increased the punishment but decided to retain the clause to give an opportunity to a couple for reconciliation," a home ministry official said. So far, Section 376A is a non-cognizable offence but the proposed ordinance made such a crime a cognizable offence.
