Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is once again at the center of a political firestorm. Crude comments involving sexual misconduct were captured on videotape by an Access Hollywood recording crew, 11 years ago.

The remarks are driving a national conversation on the definition and language of sexual abuse Researcher Kate Harding, author of “Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture and What We Can Do About It,” characterizes Trumps taped comments and other forms of sexual aggression as the result of “a sense of entitlement to women’s bodies.”

After the tape was released, originally by the Washington Post, victims of sexual assaults have come forward. In the Twitter hashtag #NotOkay, over 27 million respondents shared their first alleged experiences. A survivor of rape herself, Harding says she is not surprised by the number of responses nor the disturbing nature of many of the tweets.

Tune in for a discussion on what exactly is rape culture, how it exists in our society and how comments like Trump’s promote it.
