Rape and romance

Dagens Nyheter this morning: Lena Jordebo interviews Katrine Kielo about her new book Rape and romance - a book about gender, aimed, perhaps, at those who normally would not read feminist literature.

From the interview:

"One way was to split a white board in two. On one side the girls got to make a list of things they did to avoid rape - it contained a lot of things, from carrying trainers in one's backpack to weapons. On the other side the guys got to make their list - which was always empty. For the girls, the unfair division of fear in society was a striking realization."
