Dress For Rape

The article titled Judge’s rape ruling ‘disgusting’ has most certainly disgusted me.

After reading this article I am reminded of two other posts I had written relating to victimization of women. Those two posts are titled Dress Code For Sexual Assault and A Bit Excessive.

Having had friends who have been raped, and to see their calls for help go unanswered, this angers me. How can someone, like a judge, who has incredible power and authority suggest that the way the woman who was raped was dressed, she was basically calling for sex to happen? WTF!

Thankfully, we have the Canadian Judicial Council and someone like Minister Jennifer Howard, who is the minister responsible for “the status of women,” to help these women reclaim their voices and dignity back after being victimized not once but twice.
