This study's interest area loops around how it is possible to understand texts' leverage over human thinking and acting. Focus lies on understanding which forces that form people’s views around men and women's relationships and relations in the public room. From this perspective our interest is to explore how the phenomenon rape is expressed in texts and how we can understand how rape through these texts are to be shaped in individuals' thoughts awareness and. Finally, it is also relevant to create understanding for how rape as a discoursive practice can have effects on individuals and society. The choice of method has fallen on Discursive analysis, we mean that this method well live up to those requirements what we set on a method's ability to generate the understanding we intend to achieve. Our aspiration is hereby not only to establish that the reality is a social construction we also intend to create understanding for how these constructions arises and what its effects are. Furthermore, the analysis is related to theories what concern feminism-, gender - and power relationships.
