Rape culture eli ("raiskauskulttuuri") viittaa siihen, että jossain alakulttuurissa tai jopa valtiossa olisi vallalla raiskausta tukevia käytäntöjä tai asenteita.

"Within feminism, rape culture is a concept that links rape and sexual violence to the culture of a society,[1] and in which prevalent attitudes and practices normalize, excuse, tolerate, and even condone rape.[2] Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, and trivializing rape. Rape culture has been used to model behavior within social groups, including prison rape and conflict areas where war rape is used as psychological warfare. Entire countries have also been alleged to be rape cultures.[3][4][5][6][7]" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_culture

According to Joyce E. Williams, "the major criticism of rape culture and the feminist theory from which it emanates is the monolithic implication that ultimately all women are victimized by all men."[1]
