There are vast amounts of stories about young women getting sexually assaulted on college campuses, and the women themselves are blamed for their own victimization. Listening to all these stories makes it seem like colleges would rather side with the males of the school, than try to help the females of the same school. In order to gain some ground in the conversation of sexual assault, colleges should incorporate well lit campuses, the criminal justice system should work to diminish reports of sexual assault, and colleges should offer more supportive programs. In the article Sexual Assault and Rape Perpetration by College Men: The Role of the Big Five Personality Traits (Voller & Long, 2010, p. 457), the authors claim that “Sexual violence is a distressing problem in U.S. society, especially on college campuses.” Voller and Long (2010) continue by stating that researchers don’t have a specific understanding of what might cause a person to commit sexual assault towards a different individual. In addition to this information, Voller and Long also claim that the five-factor model might give a better understanding of what could cause someone commit sexual assault (2010, p. 459).

This paper will explore the dynamics of rape against women soldiers in the military and the research done on its prevalence. The Aberdeen Proving Ground sexual assault investigation was initiated by a trail of complaints submitted by women trainees who reported assaults perpetrated by drill sergeants on the base. Females were no strangers to military service, however, this 1996 investigation was the beginning of a series of female complaints that brought attention to the service of women in the military, (Titunik, 2000). In 1991, the largest enrollment of women soldiers was recorded during the Persian War. This marked a propelling increase in the amount of women enlisting for military service.
Running head: THE REALITY OF RAPE Rape is a crime of violence and aggression that not only hurts a victim for the moment, but it shatters her entire life. According to the Britannica Encyclopedia, rape is defined as “any kind of unlawful sexual activity, usually sexual intercourse, carried out forcibly or under threat of injury and against the will of the victim.” This definition has been redefined to cover same-sex attacks and attacks against those who are incapable of valid consent, including persons who are mentally ill, intoxicated, drugged, etc. (rape). Because rape crimes affect all races, cultures, ages, and economical classes, it is difficult to create concrete research on the topic because of the variances. Society in the United States by no means condones rape, but it does expect it.
