Marital Rape and the Law: The Role of Gender Stratification

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As women’s position in the stratification structure alters, do marital rape laws also change? Traditional rape laws consider a wife’s consent to sex with her husband as a condition of their marriage contract and therefore bar the prosecution of a rape victim’s spouse. But progressive rape laws treat spouses no differently than nonspouse offenders. The author examines macro-level factors that might explain the presence of traditional versus progressive rape statues. A Marxist-feminist perspective informs an evaluation of marital rape laws in forty-six of the United States between 1970 and 1998. This perspective suggests that expansions in women’s economic and political power should produce laws that favor women’s rights. Pooled, cross-sectional time series analyses indicate that progressive statutes are more likely where women exhibit higher rates of labor force participation and political representation.
