We think of rape as an individual not a group act. It is difficult to grasp its social dimention. We assume that, like sex, it takes place in private. It is difficult enough to face the idea of rape. To envisage gang rape is even harder, it is easier to ignore the distinction, to class it all as rape. Yet the historical origins of rape rest with the gang. The Latin word from which rape derives mean "to seize or carry off". In ancient times, warring tribes abducted women, who then became the spoils of war.
It is generally believed for men who engage in gang rape to be pathological bullies, fiends or maniacs, and that gang rape is far less common that individual rape. The findings of research refute these assumptions.

Screamed at the top of my lungs,
While everybody ignored.
My soul's been broken so many times
Never to be restored.
I've hit rock bottom,
In a world as cold as steal,
I stand in darkness, the emptiness,
Where there's confusion between fake and real.
The past hits the present,
They are forever to be entwined,
The future faded long ago
To darkness we are resigned.
But we have fallen to solid rock
No lower can we go,
Above us is light and hope,
Which one day we may know.
