The rape of women is viewed almost as a normal part of life by some, so much so that perpetrators will go as far as to record the act.

Just a week ago in Chicago six male most of them teenagers gang raped a fifteen year old girl. Not only did they violate  this girl but they livestream it on Facebook. What is also disturbing is that 40 persons reportedly watched the rape taking place and none of them reported it.

Is this where we are as a society? Is this kind of behavior now the new norm that people would watch a crime like this been committed and see no need to report it.

This also raises another question. How are we raising our children? What kind of values are been instilled in them. We need to work towards having a society where men and boys understand that rape is wrong.
