The process of socialization may be the reason US have the highest incidence of rape in western nations. Several causes of rape factors are the result of the ways society influence men to use power, aggression, and physical force if necessary to get what they want. Therefore, the same socialization process influences men to use aggression and physical force if necessary to get sexual gratification from women.

Society plays a major part influencing and reinforcing gender roles that are learned through peers, school, and media. From early ages young boys are taught to be aggressive and young girls are taught to be passive.

Society influences women to become passive and nurturing who are less likely to challenge men’s aggression. The fact is any women are at risk of being rape because men are physically stronger and no matter how hard women try to resist men can overpower women. The rapist also tends to select victims they can intimidate into submission by using threat and weapons.
