The public outing of predatory men has changed public discourse about sexual assault. With the MeToo movement, women and men have started publicly naming themselves as survivors of sexual coercion, destroying stereotypes of what victims of harassment and rape look and sound like. Focusing on networks of complicity means reframing the narratives we tell about sexual assault. Instead of just focusing on victims, we can also see how perpetrators used their connections to escape punishment.
Sex, Lies and the KKK
Former KKK leader sentenced 10 years for sex crime | Toledo Blade
AP — A onetime Ku Klux Klan leader who served time for burning a cross near a black neighborhood is going back to prison after being convicted of sexually abusing a woman in southern Alabama. A jury convicted Dinkle, 31, of sexual abuse in June after prosecutors claimed he recorded himself sexually abusing an incapacitated woman. A letter from the victim filed this week in court asked for a tough sentence for Dinkle. Defense attorney David Harrison said Dinkle disagreed with the verdict and plans an appeal. His mother was the chapter secretary, according to the Justice Department.

While most women focused on the moral, civic, and educational agendas of the Klan, they also had considerable involvement in issues of race , class , ethnicity , gender , and religion. White, native-born, Protestant women over age 18 were allowed to join the Klan. Women of the Klan differed from Klansmen primarily in their political agenda to incorporate racism , nationalism , traditional morality, and religious intolerance into everyday life through mostly non-violent tactics. Although women were not participating members, they were often used as a symbol of racial and sexual supremacy and were protected by the men of the KKK. Some women assisted with sewing klan costumes and others let the men borrow their own clothes to serve as a disguise.
