Cuklanz, Lisa M.
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v15 n4 p423-48 Dec 1998
Contributes to scholarship regarding whether, when, and how feminist formulations of rape made their way into the mainstream by examining 25 episodes of prime-time television featuring rape as a primary plot element from 1976 through 1978. Finds that these episodes bolster hegemonic masculinity by focusing on male protagonists, depicting them as nurturing and concerned for victim rights and feelings. (SR)
