Description
Chantz Delgado Journal Entry #8 10/22/13 In No Turning Back, Freedman discusses the importance of gender and violence.  Frethman dives into the idea of rape and the issue of abusive husbands during the mid­ 19  century. The first step was to understand that rape could come from close members of  the family as well as strangers. Marital rape is when their spouse rapes their significant  other. Terms such as these became prominent in this second wave feminist movement.  Understanding the importance of naming all forms of violence against women as  illegitimate practices became known.  In Smith’s article “Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide,” it is really  tough to find support after being a victim of sexual violence. In a colonial context, rape is  accepted because their bodies are considered dirty and sexually violable.
