Description: "Rape" once meant the theft of a woman from a man and the theft of her chastity. Catty (community psychiatry, St. George's Hospital Medical School, London) traces the transition from that definition in the early modern period to its current usage, through a critique of the seduction plots so prevalent in damsel-in-distress romances, prose fiction, and Elizabethan poetry and drama; and its redefinition by 16th and 17th century women writers (e.g. Jane Lumley, Elizabeth Cary, Lady Mary Wroth).
