Alongside, the author gives insights from myriad survivors; world-famous experts; a jail inmate who observes and provides us with a commentary on the worldview of rape convicts inside a prison; and many more.At a time when sexual violence is crippling our society, Why Men Rape marks an important contribution towards making us aware of the problem, and finding a way to stop it.
