    Abstract

    The purpose of this research is to explore the underlying causes and contributory factors associated with violence and sexual assault committed against women. What attributed to men’s propensity to commit acts of violence against women to include sexual violence? As part of my research, the following areas are examined in order to grasp an understanding of rape: the historical context of rape, myths and stigmas associated with rape, the use of alcohol and drugs to coerce and manipulate rape, and rape culture. Finally, my research concludes by focusing specifically upon the violence and sexual assault of Native American women in Indian Country. I provide a comparison of how Native American women are victimized and impacted by rape as opposed to women in mainstream America.
