Politician blaming rape victims

Please spread the word


Hi there -
Politicians say ridiculous things about women's rights all the time, but I thought this was particularly horrendous: a female politician in India responded to a gang rape by blaming the victim, and said that women can invite rape with their clothing and behavior. And the politician who said it is on India's women's commission.
Nobody who blames rape victims for their assault should be advising on women's rights. I signed a petition demanding that the politician be taken off the women's commission. Will you sign it too?
Thanks!
