In art, in reporting, in legislation, the women and men who suffer from PTSD as a result of sexual trauma are continuously diminished and overlooked. For women, this reflects a much longer history of treating women's emotional trauma as suspect, as a reflection of their innate weakness rather than their objective experiences. (See, for instance, centuries of diagnosing "female hysteria," which was only dropped as an official diagnosis in the 1950s.) As a result, women are less likely to seek proper treatment, unaware that they are experiencing a well-studied and treatable condition.
