wearing tight jeans.

grocery store when she saw the
man again. Her hands shook so
much she couldn't sign her
name on the movie rental form.
Although Diana and other
rape victims on campus say they
will never entirely regain their
trust of men, they believe the
Violence Against Women Act of
199.1 will help other victims by
strengthening laws against
The act is a national bill that
would authorize more money
for victim services and for edu
cation on rape, wife battering,
civil rights, campus safety and
sexism in the c ourt system.

By Tammy Batey

One day during their senior year of high
school. Michael and his girlfriend Elizabeth
walked to her house during their lunch break.
They had been dating for five months and had
engaged in sex several times.
That day. Michael and Elizabeth, both then
18. sat on her bed talking. Michael wanted to
have sex. Elizabeth did not.
Michael told her. ‘Come on," while he kissed
her and hugged her to him.
Elizabeth pulled away from him and said.
"Don't. Leave me alone."
Michael persisted, and finally Elizabeth took
off her clothes, lay down on the bed and said.
"OK "
Michael and Elizabeth didn't talk about what
had happened that day. Throe years later,
Michael rood the definition of coercive rape in
a Creating a Rope Free environment class pack
et and realized the incident with his girlfriend
fit this definition.
In the CARE class, coercive rape is described
as using verbal pressure to engage a person in
sex against his or her will.
Under Oregon law, Michael did not rape his
girlfriend because he did not threaton her. Poo
ple commit rape when they either physically
force someone to have sex or when they threat
en to injure, kill or falsely accuse someone of o
crime unless that person consents to sex. said
