Monday, October 27, 2014: Gone Girl and Rape Myths

Examining The False Rape Narrative

Kate Raphael discusses Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, and the blockbuster film based on the book. Is Flynn's portrayal of a serial rape fabricator a transgressive reversal of gender stereotypes or a promotion of dangerous sexist myths?

We also cover the San Francisco vigil demanding justice for Jennifer Laude, trans Filipina killed by a U.S. Marine.
