UK: Women say some rape victims should take blame

This is some serious hating going on here.

A majority of women believe some rape victims should take responsibility for what happened, a survey suggests.

Almost three-quarters of women said if a rape victim got into bed with the assailant before an attack they should accept some responsibility.

One-third blamed victims who had dressed provocatively or gone back to the attacker's house for a drink.

The survey of more than 1,000 people in London marked the 10th anniversary of the Haven service for rape victims.

The study found that women were less forgiving of the victim than men.

Some 71% of women thought a person should accept responsibility when getting into bed with someone, compared with 57% of men.
