Johnson & Sheehy: Social science research does not distort problems of sexual violence. Inaccurate commentators do
Publication: National Post
In this Op-Ed, Holly Johnson, Department of Criminology and Elizabeth Sheehy, Common Law Section, refute a column by Barbara Kay regarding the definitions of rape and sexual assault. According to them, "the problem is not that women or social science research exaggerate the problem of sexual violence. The problem is that commentators like Kay attempt to drown out this important conversation by reasserting outdated and inaccurate stereotypes."
