Stop blaming victims of rape | Essay

Inledning
Every fifth woman is a victim of sexual harassment. Only twenty percent of all rapes are reported; what happens to the other eighty percent?

Why don't the studies show more reports? Maybe we don’t go to the police because we want to forget what happened, or like in most cases, because we put the blame on ourselves.

Utdrag
