Challenging the myth that “she was asking for it”: Rape Crisis Scotland’s Public Awareness Campaign

Standard

Check out this excellent PSA put out by Rape Crisis Scotland as part of their Not Ever Campaign, which points to the absolute ludicrousness of the claim that women are ever “asking to be raped” based on what they wear, how they act, where they go, or whether they’ve been partying. The message here is powerful: victim-blaming and slut-shaming are unequivocally wrong.There is no excuse for rape (or any sexual violence). Not Ever!

Cara over at The Curvature has some interesting stuff to say about the campaign.
