Soon after the sexual misconduct allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein became public in late 2017, the #MeToo movement went viral, opening up an explosive conversation about rape culture around the globe. In the US, someone is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds. More than 320,000 Americans over the age of twelve are sexually assaulted each year. Men are victims too. One in thirty-three American men will be sexually assaulted or raped in his lifetime. Yet only 3 percentof rapists ever serve time in jail. Learn about the patriarchal constructs that support rape culture and how to dismantle them: redefining healthy manhood and sexuality, believing victims, improving social and legal systems and workplace environments, evaluating media with a critical eye, and standing up to speak out. Case studies provide a well-rounded view of real people on all sides of the issues.

You can’t fight what you don’t understand! Amber Keyser’s book was an excellent reminder of that!! While social media has given us a greater awareness and powerful tools to dismantle rape culture, someone is sexually assaulted in this country every 98 seconds!! Want to be a part of challenging the media, supporting healthier constructs of masculinity and sexuality, improving our legal system, and stopping the blaming and shaming of victims? Read this book to find out how to challenge the patriarchal constructs of the status quo and fight for a world where there are “no more excuses!”
