Mary Koss is the feminist researcher behind the factoid that one in four women will be raped in her lifetime. In Mary Koss’s original survey only one in sixteen women said “yes” to “have you been raped?”
So how did she get her one in four number?
By asking women “have you ever been physically forced to have sex or have had sex under the influence of drugs or alcohol” and disregarding if they said that they hadn’t been raped.
If you’re a woman and you don’t think you’re raped, you don’t get to decide that, Mary Koss does.And if you’re a man and you think you were raped, well… Mary Koss has news for you!
