There is considerable variability in the rape law reforms adopted by the states. Some jurisdictions embraced all of the reforms described in Chapter 1, while others enacted very limited changes. Some states enacted “strong” versions of a particular reform, others enacted “weak” versions. Some reform statutes reflect feminist conceptions of rape, others reflect more traditional views (Berger, Searles, and Newman, 1988). A few legislatures passed comprehensive reform bills, whereas others adopted individual changes over a number of years.
