How to use rape in a sentence?

  1. Amanda Knox:

    The fact that I was accused of orchestrating a rape game — it was so absurd.

  2. John Doe:

    I don't think the school has any place adjudicating things like rape, they don't do it with murder or kidnap, so why are they doing it with something just as hard to evaluate?

  3. Laura Hawks:

    Experiencing rape at first sexual encounter is an extreme loss of autonomy over ones sexuality.

  4. Andrea Dworkin:

    Seduction is often difficult to distinguish from rape. In seduction, the rapist often bothers to buy a bottle of wine.

  5. Rob Williams:

    DFID does not even count how much of our overseas aid budget is spent on keeping them safe from rape and recruitment into armed forces, or making sure that they can learn to at least read and write, the result is that even in the relative stability of refugee camps in Jordan, less than half of Syrian refugee children get an hour or two of schooling per day. The failure to protect and educate children fleeing conflict undermines the value of the rest of our aid efforts.
