This HORRIFYING statistic caught my eye when I was reading:
NYTimes – In This Rape Center, the Patient Was 3 (upsetting but worthwhile read)
Just think about how much money is directed towards those issues. For example over £1200 million on goes towards cancer research in one year (and let’s not talk about the cost of war). Now, *obviously* i’m not saying that we should stop spending money on researching cancer and stopping malaria, but if violence against women is killing that many people, WHY is it not taken as seriously?
Yes, ‘cos it’s all our fault for wearing clothes that were provocative, being nagging bitches… and the great catch all, “She was asking for it”
