To some, the root cause of rape culture is the "domination and objectification of women".  However, academic theory holds that rape culture does not necessarily have a single cause, and causes may be localized based on other social aspects of culture. Rape culture is a fluid and always-changing entity that is socially produced and socially legitimated, so throughout time and place its definitions will change. Reasoning about rape and rape culture is also influenced by gender and heterosexuality norms, and therefore is also changing through time and place.   For example, in South Africa the overriding "war culture", which emphasized masculinity and violence, led to a culture in which rape was normalized .   A University of California Davis public document alleged that major causes of rape were the enforcement of women having to follow social rules and the conditioning of gender roles.  Others say in a rape culture women are conditioned to assume responsibility for male sexuality, and gender roles are socially constructed and enforced on women through fear.

In practice, culture referred to an elite ideal and was associated with such activities as art , classical music , and haute cuisine .  As these forms were associated with urban life, "culture" was identified with "civilization" (from lat. civitas , city). Another facet of the Romantic movement was an interest in folklore , which led to identifying a "culture" among non-elites. This distinction is often characterized as that between high culture , namely that of the ruling social group , and low culture . In other words, the idea of "culture" that developed in Europe during the 18th and early 19th centuries reflected inequalities within European societies.
