the problem of violence against women cannot be fully understood, let alone solved, by focusing exclusively on individual psychology. Only by changing the social and cultural institutions that have given rise to the problem can a lasting solution be achieved.

(Koss, 1993: 1055)

The implicit relation ensures that the individualistic nature of societal and legal conceptions will remain. Law seeks individualistic accounts of human behaviour, and mainstream psychology supplies them. These disciplines do not offer one another independent or neutral opinions; rather they serve to confirm joint biases. They have been able to satisfy each other that there is no need to look for an alternative way to understand or address the issue of rape.
