About the book

In Why Men Rape, Tara Kaushal sets out to understand the reasons through a detailed investigation which includes meetings with nine men who have an inclination to commit acts of sexual violence. The men interviewed for the book belong to all sections of society: a doctor who raped his twelve-year-old patient; an unemployed youth who decided to kill his former lover; a youth who gang raped; a serial gang rapist who doesn’t believe rape exists. Alongside, the author gives insights from myriad survivors; world-famous experts; a jail inmate who observes and provides us with a commentary on the worldview of rape convicts inside a prison; and many more.At a time when sexual violence is crippling our society, Why Men Rape marks an important contribution towards making us aware of the problem, and finding a way to stop it.
