It was sparked by the comments of a police chief.
"There have been a number of responses to the SlutWalk phenomenon, not all of them positive. For example, Australian commentator Andrew Bolt observed that guidance on how to dress in any given context is simply risk management, and such advice need not exclude opposition to victim-blaming. Rod Liddle agrees, saying "...I have a perfect right to leave my windows open when I nip to the shops for some fags, without being burgled. It doesn’t lessen the guilt of the burglar that I’ve left my window open, or even remotely suggest that I was deserving of being burgled. Just that it was more likely to happen." Mike Strobel even suggests that the approach SlutWalk is advocating is dangerous, and he would not advise a daughter to dress "provocatively in iffy circumstances.""http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SlutWalk
So that's two other quoted people basically saying that how a woman dresses may invite rape.
In a NY Times article about the gang rape of an 11 year old girl they mentioned the way she dressed and acted too
The little girl, the paper noted, "dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground . . ." http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree ... NTCMP=SRCH
The article as subsequently changed, but the fact they felt the need to mention it is pretty astonishing.
Here's an article about a muslim cleric who said if they want to stop rapes in Canada, they should make it illegal for women to dress provativelyhttp://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyat ... ocatively/
And some statistics from a survey in Britain:
"The results of a survey published today suggest that more than half (54 per cent) of women think that rape victims are sometimes to blame for the crime.
Of these women, 71 per cent thought that the victim should accept responsibility if she got into the same bed as her attacker, compared to 57 per cent of men. Nearly a fifth (19 per cent) of women said the victim should accept partial responsibility if she went back to the attacker's house.
Twenty-three per cent thought that a victim who danced suggestively on a night out was to blame if she was subsequently raped, and 31 per cent thought the same of those wearing provocative clothes."http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/the-s ... men-survey
I hope that's enough.
