Rape Crisis Centres

It looks like rape is actually legal in Britain. Rape continually has a shamefully low conviction rate, but is it just the criminal justice system that is to blame or attitudes about rape? There are 50% less rape crisis centres now than there were in 1985. Juries rarely believe victims when it does go to court. The criminal justice system will improve when attitudes about rape change in society. Check out the Guarduan -,,2148480,00.html

Check out the TAR website They are planning a national meeting for Spring 2008.

I think feminists and the left need to get back to brass tacks and we take up demands to keep rape crisis centres open
