Winner of the Association for Women In Psychology 2006 Distinguished Publication Award!The past two decades have witnessed a significant shift in how rape is understood in Western societies. This shift in perception has revealed the startling frequency of occurrences of date rape, obscuring the divide between rape and what was once just sex. Just Sex? combines an overview of the existing literature with an analysis of recent research to examine the psychological and cultural implications of this new epidemic. The result is the conclusion that feminist theory on sexual victimisation has gone both too far and not far enough. The reader is presented with a challenging and original perspective on the issues of rape, sex and the body, incorporating subjects including: * rape as a social problem* the social constructionism of sex, subjectivity and the body* heterosexuality under the microscope This book succeeds in making a valuable contribution to feminist and social contructionist work on rape that will be of interest to those studying psychology, gender studies, cultural studies and sociology.Just Sex? The Cultural Scaffolding of Rape was selected as a 2005 winner of AWPs (Association for Women in Psychology) distinguished publication award.

Una sociedad en busca de una Etica Universal con unos minimos aceptados por todos los pueblos. Una sociedad con necesidad de Cuidados tiernos y amorosos. Valores que se configuraran desde paradigmas diferentes a los dictados por sociedades patriarcales, desde posturas y pensamientos unilaterales, androcentricos. Es una historia de amor entre la humanidad, representada en sus protagonistas: Sara, Agar, Abran, Rebeca e Isaac. Una Fuerza Interior misteriosa que sobrecoge y envuelve.

Las olas del mar Mediterraneo depositaron sus nombres en las finas arenas de las playas. Mujeres que lucharon y fueron avanzadilla de lo que un dia llegarian a ser muchas mujeres de nuestros dias. Diosas del desierto y de fertiles valles, de la llanura y la montana. Diosas del Mediterraneo. Necesitamos caminar juntos, hombres y mujeres para emprender grandes proyectos. Solo asi haremos avanzar a la Humanidad de manera justa y gozosa.
