  1. Rape and Persuasive Definition.Keith Burgess-Jackson - 1995 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 25 (3):415 - 454.
    If we [women] have not stopped rape, we have redefined it, we have faced it, and we have set up the structures to deal with it for ourselves.[T]he definition of rape, which has in the past always been understood to mean the use of violence or the threat of it to force sex upon an unwilling woman, is now being broadened to include a whole range of sexual relations that have never before in all of human experience been regarded as (...)
