A majority of women believe some rape victims should take responsibility for what happened, a survey suggests.
Almost three quarters of the women who believed this said if a victim got into bed with the assailant before an attack they should accept some responsibility.
One-third blamed victims who had dressed provocatively or gone back to the attacker’s house for a drink.
More than half of those of both sexes questioned said there were some circumstances when a rape victim should accept responsibility for an attack.
The survey, commissioned by The Havens organization, is available here (PDF).
