"One in five Australians believe a woman is partly responsible for rape if she’s drunk, while more than one in five believe that domestic violence can be excused if people get so angry they lose control. However the national survey of 17,500 people found that the majority of Australians believed that domestic violence was a criminal offence and could not be excused if the offender was stressed or drunk."
In addition to the focus of the article, it’s important to note that the source illustrates that a massive 38% agree that “A lot of times women who say they were raped led the man on and later had regrets.” Roughly 2/5 of the surveyed people believe that women often lie about rape. No wonder rape convictions are so abysmally low. Reinforcing that view, only 59% believe that “Women rarely make false claims of rape,” so obviously 41% believe they often do.
10% believe that “if a woman doesn’t physically resist – even if protesting verbally – then it isn’t really rape.”
Can we stop pretending that rape culture doesn’t exist in Australia?
