  7. 7. RAPE <ul><li>In criminal law, rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person's consent. </li></ul><ul><li>According to the American Medical Association sexual violence and rape in particular is considered the most under-reported violent crime. </li></ul><ul><li>Rape is also recognized as an element of the crime of genocide when committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a targeted ethnic group. </li></ul>
  8. 8. RAPE: EFFECTS <ul><li>Can result in the victim being seriously traumatised. </li></ul><ul><li>Depersonalization or dissociation (feeling numb and detached, like being in a daze or a dream, or feeling that the world is strange and unreal) </li></ul><ul><li>Development of eating disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>Intense, unpredicted emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>In general, rape and sexual assault are among the most common causes of PTSD in women </li></ul><ul><li>Difficulty remembering important parts of the assault </li></ul><ul><li>Reliving the assault through repeated thoughts, memories, or nightmares </li></ul><ul><li>Avoidance of things, places, thoughts, and/or feelings that remind the victim of the assault </li></ul><ul><li>Anxiety or increased alertness (difficulty sleeping, concentrating, etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Avoidance of social life or place of rape </li></ul>
  9. 9. RAPE: ‘VICTIM BLAMING’ <ul><li>When victims behaviour such as flirting, or wearing sexually-provocative clothing may be seen to encourage rape.  </li></ul><ul><li>In extreme cases, victims are said to have &quot;asked for it&quot;, simply by not behaving demurely. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, rape victims are blamed more when they are raped by an acquaintance or a date rather than by a stranger. </li></ul>
  10. 10. RAPE: CASE STUDY: DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO. <ul><li>Since 1996, sexual violence has been used to intimidate, humiliate, and torture hundreds of thousands of women and girls. </li></ul><ul><li>Rape here has frequently been described as a &quot;weapon of war,&quot; and the United Nations officially declared rape a weapon of war in 2008. </li></ul><ul><li>Noel Rwabirinba, a sixteen year old who had been a militiaman for two years said, “If we see girls, it’s our right…we can violate them”  </li></ul><ul><li>Effects : Rape makes a particularly effective weapon in genocide because not only does it destroy its physical victims, but entire communities as well. </li></ul><ul><li>The medical repercussions of the sexual assault in the DRC vary from severed and broken limbs, burned flesh, fistulas, STIs, pregnancy, and urinary incontinence to death. </li></ul><ul><li>The most extreme versions of this stigmatization can lead to &quot;honor killings&quot; in which the victim of sexual violence is murdered by her family or community due to the belief that she has brought them shame and dishonor. </li></ul>

  12. 12. INCEST <ul><li>Incest is sexual intercourse between close relatives that is illegal in the jurisdiction where it takes place and/or is socially taboo. </li></ul>
  13. 13. INCEST: EFFECTS <ul><li>It can result in serious and long-term psychological trauma, especially in the case of parental incest. </li></ul><ul><li>It is seen in some countries victimless crime if it is consensual, and thus it is rarely reported. </li></ul><ul><li>The increased mortality of babies from heterosexual incestuous couples is enough to criminalize the act. </li></ul>
  14. 14. INCEST: EFFECTS STATS <ul><li>One study concluded that among the survivors of incest who were victimized by their mothers, 60 percent (60%) of the women had eating disorders as did one-fourth (25%) of the men. </li></ul><ul><li>Of the 93 women and nine men included in this study, 80 percent (80%) of the women and all of the men reported sexual problems in their adult life. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition, almost two-thirds of the women stated that they never or rarely went to the doctor or the dentist as the examination was too terrifying for them. </li></ul>

  16. 16. GROPING: CASE STUDY: JAPAN <ul><li>A 2001 survey conducted in two Tokyo high schools revealed that more than 70% of students had been groped while travelling on trains.  </li></ul><ul><li>As part of the effort to combat the problem, some railway companies designate women-only passenger cars during rush hours. </li></ul><ul><li>Although crowded trains are the most frequent targets, another common setting are bicycle parking areas, where people bent over unlocking locks are targets. </li></ul><ul><li>It is often featured in Japanese pornography. </li></ul><ul><li>The criminal courts have traditionally been lenient in cases of groping and have only recently made efforts to combat the social problem with tougher sentences. </li></ul>
  17. 17. HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING <ul><li>Human trafficking is the illegal trade in human beings for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labour, a modern-day form of slavery. </li></ul>
