This week we dig deep into our culture and the stories we tell or chose not to tell. Women in the stories of early Rome were there but are almost absent in the teaching of its founding. Is it possible it's because rape permeates these stories? Would talking about rape and the historic examples allow us to address the present challenges presented by these topics? We learn about the kidnapping and rapes of women at the outset of the Kingdom of Rome and Lucretias rape at the hands of Sextus to end the Regal Period. Women were always there, you just have to be brave enough to teach it.
