    Women 'to blame' for being raped

    A third of Britons believe a woman who acts flirtatiously is partially or completely to blame for being raped, according to a new study.

    More than a quarter also believe a woman is at least partly responsible for being raped if she wears sexy or revealing clothing, or is drunk, the study found.

    One in five think a woman is partly to blame if it is known she has many sexual partners, while more than a third believe she is responsible to some degree if she has clearly failed to say "no" to the man.

    In each of these scenarios a slightly greater proportion of men than women held these views - except when it came to being drunk, when it was equal.

    In fact more women (5pc) than men (3pc) thought a woman was "totally responsible" for being raped if she was intoxicated.

    Support groups described the findings as "alarming" and "appalling".

    The national charity Victim Support urged criminal justice professionals and healthcare workers to "consider how best to educate people about the terrible impact of rape, with a view to changing these attitudes."

    The ICM opinion poll, commissioned by Amnesty International, also revealed that the vast majority of the British population has no idea how many women are raped every year in the UK.

    Almost all, 96 per cent, of respondents said they either did not know the true extent of rape or thought it was far lower than the true figure.

    Only 4 per cent even thought the number of women raped exceeded 10,000. The number of recorded rapes in 2004/5 was more than 12,000 and the 2001 British Crime Survey estimated that just 15 per cent of rapes come to the attention of the police.

    'Rape is an appalling crime'

    Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen said the poll, part of its Stop Violence Against Women campaign, had uncovered "disturbing attitudes".

    She said: "It is shocking that so many people will lay the blame for being raped at the feet of women themselves and the government must launch a new drive to counteract this sexist 'blame culture'."

    The research had also exposed the scale of public ignorance over the true extent of rape crimes in the UK and the "dreadfully low" conviction rates, she said.

    "The government has an international duty to prevent this gross human rights violation yet it's clear that the government's policies on tackling rape are failing and failing badly," she said.

    "These findings should act as a wake-up call to the government to urgently tackle the triple problem of the high incidence of rape, low conviction rates and a sexist blame culture."

    Joanna Perry, policy manager at Victim Support, said: "It is alarming to read that so many people seem to believe that a woman is responsible for inviting a rape or sexual assault, because of what she was wearing, what she drank or how she behaved.

    "Rape is an appalling crime and has a devastating effect on victims, and those close to them. In other words, nobody asks to be raped."

    'Prejudices' in court system

    Ruth Hall, from the support group Women Against Rape, criticised "prejudices" in the court system, saying: "They still put the woman on trial, including her sexual history with other men, which is supposed to be banned and blame the woman for what happened to her and hold her accountable.

    "If that is the standard set by the people who are supposed to be prosecuting rapists and protecting us it is not surprising if members of the public say the same thing."

    She added: "Rather than another Government awareness campaign, the Government's responsibility is to get the criminal justice authorities to prosecute violent men. Let them worry about the awareness of the police, judges and the Crown Prosecution Service and public

    awareness will change."

    Sheila Coates, director of the South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre, said the poll showed people had little idea about the true extent of rape in the UK.

    The support systems for victims were already stretched, she warned.

    "The situation for rape victims and women's specialist sexual violence services are at critical," she said.

    "Those needing counselling face waiting lists of up to one year and this can only get worse as more rape crisis groups close or cut back services due to a lack of funding and government support. This situation has forced victims into a postcode lottery when trying to find support."

    The Home Office said it was determined to increase the number of rape cases which were successfully prosecuted.

    A spokesman said: "We have made a number of changes to the legal system and to how the police and Crown Prosecution Service work, to put victims needs first and to make it easier for cases to get to trial and secure convictions.

    "We are determined to close the gap between the increasing number of rape cases reported and the low number of convictions."

    The number of recorded rapes of a female in 2004-05 was 12,867, up from 12,345 in 2003-04 - an increase of 4 per cent. The number of convictions for rape of a female in 2004 was 741, up from 666 in 2003.

    • ICM interviewed a random sample of 1,095 adults aged 18+ by telephone.

    They were given a series of scenarios and asked to indicate whether they believed a woman was totally responsible, partially responsible or not at all responsible for being raped.

    If the woman was drunk, 4pc said she was totally responsible and 26pc said she was partially responsible.

    If the woman behaved in a flirtatious manner, 6pc said she was totally responsible and 28pc said she was partially responsible.

    If the woman failed to say "no" clearly to the man, 8pc said she was totally responsible and 29pc said she was partially responsible.

    If the woman was wearing sexy or revealing clothing, 6pc said she was totally responsible and 20pc said she was partially responsible.

    If it is known that the woman has many sexual partners, 8pc said she was totally responsible and 14pc said she was partially responsible.

    If she is alone and walking in a dangerous or deserted area, 5pc said she was totally responsible and 17pc said she was partially responsible.

    Here are some key statistics about sexual violence:

    • Approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year; that's roughly 11 rapes (of adults alone) every hour
    • Nearly half a million adults are sexually assaulted in England and Wales each year
    • 1 in 5 women aged 16 - 59 has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16
    • Only around 15% of those who experience sexual violence choose to report to the police
    • Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence
    These figures come from An Overview of Sexual Offending in England and Wales, the first ever joint official statistics bulletin on sexual violence released by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Home Office in January 2013.

    As well as this:
    • 31% of young women aged 18-24 report having experienced sexual abuse in childhood (NSPCC, 2011)
    • In 2012-13, 22,654 sexual offences against under-18s were reported to police in England and Wales with four out of five cases involving girls (NSPCC, 2014)
    • Most women in the UK do not have access to a Rape Crisis Centre (Map of Gaps, 2007)
    • A third of people believe women who flirt are partially responsible for being raped (Amnesty, 2005)
    • Conviction rates for rape are far lower than other crimes, with only 5.7% of reported rape cases ending in a conviction for the perpetrator. (Kelly, Lovett and Regan, A gap or a chasm? Attrition in reported rape cases, 2005)
    Rape Crisis England & Wales headline statistics 2014-15:

    • Rape Crisis member organisations across England and Wales responded to 165,000 helpline calls in the 12 months to 31st March 2015, an average over 3,000 a week
    • Over 50,000 individuals received an on-going Rape Crisis service(s), an increase of 50% over the last two years
    • Rape Crisis members provided in excess of 300,000 sessions of specialist support, including advocacy, emotional support, counselling
    • 94 per cent of all service users were female.
    • Three-quarters of all adult service users contacted Rape Crisis about sexual violence that occurred at least 12 months earlier; 47% were adult survivors of child sexual abuse
    • Over half of the individuals that contact Rape Crisis prefer to self-refer, a pattern which has remained consistent over the past five years and continues to demonstrate the necessity for funded independent services
    • Where age is known, those aged under 24 represented 25% of service users and 1,500 were aged 15 or under
    • Where ethnicity is known, 23% of Rape Crisis services users were black or minority ethnic
    • The Rape Crisis England & Wales website received nearly 12 million hits during the year; there was an average of 36,631 unique visitors to the site per month, up 23% from 2013-14
    • Whilst the use of email support by service users has increased by 45% over the last 12 months there has been a loss of advocacy services due to local commissioning processes

    The BBC has consistently blamed all Asians for the crimes committed by the Pakis. That is one reason, and not the only reason, why I call it the British Brainwashing Corporation.

    @Srinivas_K

    I call New York Times the New York Trash. Watch out for Michael Gordon, the most retarded journalist from that organization. His livelihood is peddling lies. He is the one who claimed aluminium tubes to prove Iraq's chemical weapons.

    Now, don't confuse New York Times with The New Yorker. I like the latter because it is more of a magazine with a bit of satire thrown in for good measure.

    Exactly there are many atrocities happening in UK and they never show them but they point fingers at India and other emerging countries even for single incident.

    These BC Brit Shit are just pussy enough not to admit that Pakis are behind majority of the rapes in Britain.

    In Western terms "Asian" usually means Oriental people(Chinese/Japs etc)

    Oh btw some related pics again.

    What't the trend with unusually high immigration coupled with insane liberals running the show in the last couple of decades?

    Sweden went from very low rape rate in the early 90s to the rape capital of Europe.

    Paaji Sikhs are ok, prison 0.7/ 0.9 population

    Muslims represent only 4.7 % of the population in England and Wales, yet one in seven prisoners (14%) are Muslims, according to the statistics.
    Shameless Hindus only contribute 0.5/1.5 pop :hehe:

    Good news is still Muslim prison pop is increasing rapidly
