  • Mood:

Proposal for anonymity for defendants in rape cases dropped,

In the face of widespread protests, the government are dropping the proposal that defendants in rape trials are granted anonymity. From a female point of view, I'm relieved.
What we need now is more work on culture change, so that attitudes to rape change, and more press responsibility around the whole issue, so that the innocent, female and male are not subjected to needless abuse, exposure and humiliation.
