Irène Théry explores what the DSK Affair and its aftermath reveal about attitudes toward rape and sexual violence, sexuality and seduction, feminism, and, from a legal perspective, the presumption of innocence and victims' rights, in a comparative, transatlantic perspective.
Irène Théry is a sociologist at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Centre Norbert Elias, Marseille and Centre Raymond Aron, Paris). A specialist of the sociology of the family and private life, her research and public action focus on changing family structures, gender relationships and generational differences.
