Theories of gender, culture and feminist intersectionality are included in the study in order to strengthen the analysis. As some of the articles argue the significance of gender others argue the importance of culture. Furthermore, a less prominent alternative view includes more factors to the occurrence of the assaults and emphasizes the perpetrators socio-economic situation. Although each discourses relate to values in presented theoretical perspectives, several important differences occur. The alternative discourse shares values presented in intersectional theory as it aims to portray a more complex worldview where several different factors cooperate. However, both the discourses of gender and culture present world views that are less flexible than the theories regarding the same topics. (Less)
