Raced post-rape subjectivities

I have been thinking for a long time about the way in which my experience of rape is intertwined with my position as a white, middle-class womxn and how this experience contrasts with the experiences of other womxn in our society.

In this presentation that I gave at the Decolonisation, Pluriversality and African-Situatedness in Sexuality and Sexuality-Related Violence Research and Advocacy Colloquium, I explore some thoughts about the ways in which our contemporary understandings of rape are rooted in colonial constructions of race.
