The author examines biblical law regarding rape and ultimately the value of women. She also points to the way in which Jesus dealt with women as an indication of his regard for their personhood. Successful evaluation and counseling of a rape victim requires the acknowledgement of the specific needs of the woman and essentially her basic identity as a woman and her role perception in our society.
