Abstract: »The whole area of submissiveness and assertiveness is explored in the subject of rape in Chapter 6 by Jennie Mills. She investigates how, far from being seen as a perversion, rape was actually normalized through already extant imagery of violent seduction.« [Source: Julie Peakman. »Preface.« Sexual Perversions, 1670-1890.
