Things have been relatively active on the female front of late. Continued coverage of Sally Ann-Bowman and the Jeshma Raithatha cases has turned the spotlight to rape and female sexual morality once more.
What’s more intriguing is the reference to Dr Tuppy’s ‘Sexual Freedom Coalition’ formed to keep explicit expression alive.
It’s staggering to observe that ‘rape is teetering on the brink of being an unpunished crime’ in Britain today,
only 5.6 percent of the rapes reported to the police in this country end in a conviction.
Figure in an equal number of unreported rapes and we’ve got a serious problem on our hands. ‘She was drunk’, ‘she was asking for it’, ‘her clothes were tight’. With attitudes like these and judges throwing out case after case on the grounds of alcohol consumption, an open debate needs to be instigated – here and now.
