This is rather depressing.
In a survey of over 1,000 people in London conducted by the Haven service for rape victims in London to mark their 10th anniversary, most respondents said that the victim should bear some responsibility for the rape. Almost three quarters of the women his said if a victim got into bed with the assailant before an attack they should accept some responsibility. One third blamed victims who had dressed provocatively or gone back to the attacker's house for a drink. More than half of those of both sexes questioned said there were some circumstances when a rape victim should accept responsibility for an attack.
The study found that women were less forgiving of the victim than men. Of the women who believed some victims should take responsibility, 71% thought a person should accept responsibility when getting into bed with someone, compared with 57% of men.
Sadly, these attitudes have a marked affect in a woman deciding whether to report a rape. The survey found that more than one in 10 people were unsure whether they would report being raped to the police, and 2% said they would definitely not do so.
The victim is NEVER to blame for what is a violent act, a violation of the body, a cowardly act. Rape is rape is rape!!!!! Attitudes HAVE to change!
