In this context the rape and battering of women could be understood not as the actions of a few pathological men but rather as the logical outcome of mainstream norms and values about masculinity and femininity (for early discussions on this theme, see Brownmiller 1975; Dworkin 1979; and Griffin 1981).

To produce a 100 percent increase, to a rate of 16, 8,755 additional men would need to be arrested.
