Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how male and female rape is scripted. Design/methodology/approach – In total, 100 (50 male, 50 female) participants were asked to write down in their own words what they considered to be the typical rape when the victim was either an adult male or female. Findings – Results revealed that men’s and women’s rape scripts did not dramatically differ, though several differences were revealed between male and female rape scripting, focussing around the gender stereotypes of men verses women. Originality/value – Results are discussed in relation to gender role stereotyping and wider implications are considered.
