Rape is a four letter word that was proscribed in polite conversation a generation ago. Even legislatures and judges avoided the word. The statute law was written by a medieval parliament at Westminster. The common law remained for a long time as it was left by antique English judges. But attitudes toward rape have changed. It is now the subject of articles in the popular press and interviews on the radio and television. The United States Congress has debated and legislated on the subject. State legislatures and municipal councils are following the Congressional lead. For the first time in centuries we are questioning the way in which the law has treated both rapists and their victims. The victims themselves, who would have retreated into lifetime seclusion in the past, are coming forward to discuss their experience and what it has done to them.
