This chapter explains why feminist researchers have tended to focus more on rape by known men than on rape by strangers. It discuses on the rape and the criminal justice system, followed by Diana Scully's theory of why men rape. The chapter explores on the feminist attention which has not focused specifically on stranger rape, but instead on rape by known men, or on rape and sexual violence more broadly rather than specifically on stranger rape. This probably for the following, overlapping reasons: given this list, it may seem odd to include stranger rape, which have argued is under-researched by feminists, with acquaintance rape, which is an area that has been more subject to feminist scrutiny. The chapter focuses on some types of rape and overview at rape by strangers and acquaintances. It demonstrates how stranger rape has gained a reputation as being easier to report, prosecute and convict for.
