Episode 48: Standing By vs. Being An Ally (2/4)

This is the second episode [of four] in our series exploring culture, the media, and sexual exploitation in the U.S. “Rape is not exclusively the product of a few bent and twisted minds but a result of [cultural] belief systems.” In this week’s podcast interview, we discuss the effects of the “rape myth,” the limitations of sexuality and rape-supportive beliefs, the influence of media violence, and the implications of the acceptance of violence against women.⁠ Our guest Neil Malamuth is a professor of social studies and communication at UCLA and interdisciplinary social scientist who studies violence and conflict. ⁠ This episode contains a trigger warning.
