In many cases the women themselves don’t even know that they’ve been raped or sexually assulted, they belive that’s a part of being in a relationship. There’s also a problem with the judiciary in Sweden whereas they can’t handle the sexual and physical violence against women. Instead the women are accountable for their actions before and during the assault and not the perpertrators. Two types of qualitative method where used to obtain the data used in the analysis. Semi-structured interviwes were used when three professionals and nine adolescents were interviwed. The professionals where interviewed to confirm the chosen definition of rape. Qualitative document analysis was used to analyze three court cases where the perpetrators where acquitted. The gender system will be used as a tool to explain and analyze the opinions of the adolescents and the courts declaractions regarding the acuitted verdicts. (Less)
