I was writing a blog post about feminism for @raniandco today & I came across some horrifying stats about rape (a bit morbid sorry):
• approx 11 adult rapes happen every hour in england & wales
• 1 in 5 women aged 16-59 has experienced a form of sexual violence since they were 16.
• A third of people believe that women who flirt are responsible for rape
• Only 5.7% of reported rape cases end in a conviction for the rapist
We need feminism so that both sexes are valued. I wrote a post on why I am a feminist a few months ago & I had loads of my female friends saying that they feel the same but don’t speak up about it, especially in the asian culture. Thought I’d repost it, give it a read on the blog.
