From the Back Cover:

When date rape hit Britain with a series of highly publicized cases, including those of Austen Donnellan, Angus Diggle and Craig Charles, the media had a field day. The headlines screamed:

"Feminism has gone mad"

"Men, the innocent victims of political correctness"

"Women don't take responsibility for bad sex"

Suddenly, thanks to feminism, there was an impossibly fine line between consensual sex and rape.

As Aileen McColgan powerfully and persuasively argues, only the terminology is new in this debate. Throughout history women who complain of rape have been marginalized, trivialized and ostracized. Rape has been denied or belittled, rapists unacknowledged or forgiven. Date rape is simply the latest in a long line of strategies to cover up the reality of rape. And the reality of rape is that It happens to very many women – and is mostly perpetrated by the men they know.

Aileen McColgan is a lecturer in Law at King's College, London.
