Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Background: The movement in the 1970s really began by women breaking the silence on the issues of rape and the damages and suffering as a result of rape. Prior to the movement, laws in the legal system did not place much legitimization on the claims of victims. Often in rape trials, the victim felt as if they were on trial instead of the defendant. Changes: Many states reformed their laws to redefine the consequences of rape convictions. The new penalty would be a gradation of offenses compared to when it used to be a single offense. More importantly, certain laws or requirements were repealed which allowed for women to have more authority in their trials. The first element to be repealed was the requirement that the victim's testimony had to be corroborated by a witness. It was also repealed that the victim had to have physically resisted the attacker.
