SA’s attitude about rape needs to change

2018-09-25 06:01

To the editor

The attitudes we possess and the behaviour we exemplify create an atmosphere that tolerates and downplays rape.

One prominent example concerns blaming the victim. We tend to focus on what the victim was wearing, drinking or doing, and this shifts the focus away from the victimiser. This implies that individuals should censor themselves to avoid being assaulted, that somehow the victim is responsible.
