Asking for it November 21, 2005Posted by Winter in rape.
I’m too tired and burned out to write a post about today’s news: Amnesty International’s survey on attitudes to rape. If you don’t already know, 1 in 3 of those surveyed thought women were either partly or completely responsible for getting raped if they were flirting, drunk, showing some skin, known to have had sex with a few people … oh you know, all the usual stuff. It’s depressing; it’s not surprising. As one commentator on Channel 4 news remarked tonight, “the sisters still have a long way to go.” You don’t have to tell us that mate.
We’re very busy at the moment and working towards our stop violence against women event on Friday. I’m sure this report will stimulate a lot of discussion.
