This chapter describes how, despite all of the campaigns and resources available for survivors in Australia, there does seem to be a resistance to changing attitudes about rape, which affects the criminal justice response. The gendered pay gap and public-private dichotomy perpetuate the devaluation of women and male dominance. It is within such a context that mythology flourishes about rape, male sexuality, and female sexuality.
