What we know about false rape allegations

What we know about false rape allegations | Herstory | Scoop.it

For one thing, research has finally nailed down a consistent range for how many reports of rape are false: somewhere between 2 and 8 percent, which is a lot narrower than the 1.5 percent to 90 percent range of the past. But it's also shown that the cultural debate over rape shapes the reality of how rapes are reported and investigated.

THIS IS OUT OF HANDS IN MY MIND. THERE YOU GO GENDER DIFFERENCES. WOMEN CAN LIE ABOUT RAPE AND EVERYONE WILL BELIEVE HER, AND THAT’S CRAZY. I KNOW IT’S NOT SIMPLE AS THAT, BUT TO WORD IT SIMPLY THAT’S HOW IT LOOKS. THERE ARE TWO THINGS I TOOK FROM THIS ARTICLE: ONE IS THAT 2 TO 8 PERCENT OF WOMEN LYING ABOUT THEM BEING RAPED, AND SECOND IS THAT REALITY SHOWS THAT RAPE REPORTS THAT TURN OUT TO BE FALSE ARE MORE LIKELY TO INVOLVE STRANGERS AND VIOLENCE.

Menstrual Hygiene Day Links Periods and Human Rights | Womens eNews | Herstory | Scoop.it
Handling periods (or 'menstrual hygiene management' as experts call it) isn't the first thing one might associate with human rights. Yet the link between realization of rights for women and girls and menstrual hygiene management could not be clearer.
