Everyone agrees that rape wrongs the victim; she has a right not to be raped.
Rape is a serious infraction of justice. But in what way has the rapist failed to pay
due regard to his victim for her achieved merit? As to autonomy, the rapist has
indeed restricted her autonomy. But I find it grotesque to suggest that what's

violated her; that's what wrong about it.44 In my book, Justice: Rights and Wrongs
