Abstract: »This paper presents findings from research about the psychological effects of rape among 15 Ghanaian and 15 Liberian rape survivors comparing them with 15 Ghanaian and 15 Liberian women not raped living in Ghana. We found that both Liberian and Ghanaian rape survivors had increased levels of depression and that both Ghanaian and Liberian women who had been raped by familiar perpetrators exhibited higher levels of depression than those raped by strangers. Liberian survivors exposed to limited cognitive behavioural counselling exhibited lower levels of depression despite being displaced and living in a refugee camp. Our findings on the psychological effects of rape and the mitigating effects of counselling are the first of their kind for Ghanaian and Liberian women. We hope that the dissemination of these results will encourage the provision of counselling for all women who find themselves victimized by rape.« [Source: T-Space]

Abstract: »During the second half of the nineteenth century, Queensland courts tried, convicted and hanged sixteen men for the crime of rape. Of these, one was Caucasian, three were Pacific Islanders and twelve were Aboriginal. The Indigenous total would have been fourteen but for the fact that two other men convicted and sentenced for this offence evaded the gallows: one died in custody, the other was shot dead while attempting to escape. In each case of execution, the victims were European women or girls.« [Source: Queensland Review]

Abstract:
»Using Nancy Fraser’s (2007a) tripartite model of justice as a theoretical backdrop, this thesis critically evaluates the United Nation’s (UN) International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), in relation to how this Tribunal has both secured and limited opportunities to ’do’ justice for sexual violence (SV) victims. This thesis applies a gendered approach to Fraser’s model, and considers how justice has been secured by women, based on principles of recognition, redistribution and representation.
Using documentary methods, the thesis analyses ICTR cases concerning SV, to determine how this Tribunal has responded to SV committed against women and girls throughout the Rwandan genocide. This thesis demonstrates that, while the Tribunal has secured some level of justice for SV victims by successfully indicting, prosecuting and punishing some individuals responsible for SV, these crimes have been constructed and responded to in ad hoc and skewed ways. The analysis shows that crimes of SV, as well as itsvictims, are underrepresented in the ICTR. It also demonstrates that where SV has been addressed, the institutional culture and framework of this Tribunal has marginalised the voice of women, and allowed for discriminatory and insensitive court practices to permeate judicial proceedings. SV victims, who continue to struggle with redistributive injustices, have been negatively impacted by these ICTR practices«. [Source: ResearchArchive–Te Puna Rangahau]

ART: Pathologizing Sexual Deviance: A History

Authors: Andreas De Block and Pieter R. Adriaens
Title: Pathologizing Sexual Deviance
Subtitle: A History
Journal: The Journal of Sex Research
Volume: 50

Abstract: »This article provides a historical perspective on how both American and European psychiatrists have conceptualized and categorized sexual deviance throughout the past 150 years. During this time, quite a number of sexual preferences, desires, and behaviors have been pathologized and depathologized at will, thus revealing psychiatry's constant struggle to distinguish mental disorder—in other words, the “perversions,” “sexual deviations,” or “paraphilias”—from immoral, unethical, or illegal behavior. This struggle is apparent in the works of 19th- and early-20th-century psychiatrists and sexologists, but it is also present in the more recent psychiatric textbooks and diagnostic manuals, such as the consecutive editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). While much of the historical literature revolves around the controversy over homosexuality, this article also reviews the recent medicohistorical and sociohistorical work on other forms of sexual deviance, including the diagnostic categories listed in the latest edition, the DSM-IV-TR: exhibitionism, voyeurism, fetishism, frotteurism, pedophilia, sexual masochism, sexual sadism, and transvestic fetishism.« [Source: Journal of Sex Research]

Abstract: »El presente trabajo de investigación tiene como finalidad elaborar un proyecto de reforma al Código Penal Ecuatoriano, que permita la aplicación de la acumulación de penas al delito de violación sexual con muerte en Ecuador, de tal manera que se establezca en la ley una pena superior a las actualmente establecidas, dentro del análisis que se ha realizado a los casos que se han dado en nuestro país se demuestra que un delincuente puede cometer varias actos delincuenciales que se le asigna la pena máxima sin considerar el número de veces, ni el numero de delitos que incurrió en sus actos, lo cual es injusto, siendo el derecho penal un derecho de defensa habitual y permanente de la sociedad, contra una amenaza, que también derivada de la congénita predisposición humana a delinquir, el objetivo de las legislaciones penales es la evitación de delitos futuros y para lograrlo la pena tiene que actuar sobre los delincuentes, influyendo en su ánimo mediante el temor a ser privado de su libertad. Este es el caso de la pena impuesta al que comete la violación a una menor tiene reclusión mayor de dieciséis a veinticinco años al igual que el que producto de la violación a una menor produjere asesinato de dieciséis a veinticinco años estipulado en el artículo 514. Cuando un hombre llevado de su impulso erótico, viola a una menor de edad ah satisfecho su necesidad orgánica, se aterra ante la perspectiva de la pena que le espera, y de la cual podrá librarse ocultando su delito de violación, aquí surge lo grave, que una mente sicótica calcula tanto el tiempo de pena, como el de supuesto no consentido labor del abogado en darles el menor de la pena, o como varios casos se han cometido varios asesinatos y varias violaciones por un delincuente y como no se encuentra tipificado la acumulación de sus penas los demás delitos quedan impunes y solo se juzgaría por uno de ellos con el máximo de la pena que equivale a dieciséis a veinticinco años y aun peor se le juzga igual que al que comete una violación a una menor pero sin ocasionarle la muerte que es de dieciséis a veinticinco años. Así, pues, a su comprensión esto queda más claro que el agua y, negarlo es querer tapar el sol con un harnero, el legislador por defender una prerrogativa de la voluntad humana, cual es la de decir no cuando puede decirse si, podría ser una de las causas de la frecuencia que se producen asesinatos con ocasión de violaciones.« [Source: Repositorio Uniandes]

Abstract:
»Background
Death is the most extreme consequence of intimate partner violence. Female homicide studies with data on the perpetrator–victim relationship can provide insights. We compare the results of two South African national studies of female homicide with similar sampling done 10 y apart.
Methods and Findings
We conducted a retrospective national survey using a weighted cluster design of a proportionate random sample of 38 mortuaries to identify homicides committed in 2009. We abstracted victim data from mortuary and autopsy reports, and perpetrator data from police interviews. We compared homicides of women 14 y and older in 2009 with previously published data collected with the same methodology for homicides committed in 1999.
The study found that the rate of female homicide per 100,000 female population in 2009 was 12.9 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 9.3, 16.5), compared to 24.7 (95% CI: 17.7, 31.6) in 1999. The incidence rate ratio of 0.54 (95% CI: 0.20, 0.84) reflects a significantly lower rate in 2009. The rate of intimate partner femicide was 5.6/100,000 in 2009 versus 8.8/100,000 in 1999, with an incidence rate ratio of 0.63 (95% CI: 0.24, 1.02), indicating no difference between rates. Logistic regression analysis of homicide characteristics showed that the odds ratio of suspected rape among non-intimate femicides in 2009 compared to 1999 was 2.61 (95% CI: 1.23, 4.08) and among intimate partner femicides it was 0.84 (95% CI: 0.50, 1.42). The OR of homicide by gunshot was 0.54 (95% CI: 0.30, 0.99) in 2009 versus 1999. There was a significant drop in convictions of perpetrators of non-intimate femicide in 2009 versus 1999 (OR = 0.32 [95% CI: 0.19, 0.53]). Limitations of the study include the relatively small sample size and having only two time points.
Conclusions
Female homicide in South Africa was lower in 2009 than 1999, but intimate partner femicide and suspected rape homicide rates were not statistically different. The cause of the difference is unknown. The findings suggest that South Africa needs greater efforts nationally to implement evidence-based violence prevention.« [Source: PLoS Medicine]
