PostSubject: Women To Blame For Rape, Say Half Of Women   Mon Feb 15, 2010 4:56 pm

More than half of women think some rape victims are to blame for what happens to them, according to a new survey.

The 'Wake up to Rape' report showed that 54% of women think rape victims should be held accountable for their role in the crime.

More than 1,000 women aged between 18 and 50 in London were asked their views of rape to mark the 10th anniversary of London's Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), The Haven support service for victims.

Nearly a fifth (19%) of females said the victim should accept partial responsibility if they go back to their attacker's house.

And one in eight thought a victim who dances in a provocative manner on a night out is also to blame for any consequences.

Experts say the results demonstrate a blame culture among women, which may have a serious impact on the confidence of rape victims admitting to themselves and others what has happened to them.

Haven manager Elizabeth Harrison told Sky News: "It's ridiculous to think that those things make you responsible for being raped because the responsibility for rape always lies with the man who's doing it, not with the woman and the way she's been behaving."

Worryingly, one in five of the women surveyed said they would not report a rape to police - 53% said it was because of shame or embarrassment.

A quarter said they would remain silent about their attack in case their family found out.

It is estimated that in the UK 95% of rape cases go unreported and even then the conviction rate is extremely low.

The Haven service helps victims recover emotionally and physically from their ordeal and has helped over 20,000 people since it started in 2000.

Was just watching them 'debate' this on This Morning, they had that Carol Malone on who was agreeing ... I thought Holly Willoughby was going to knock out at one point.
