The clothes, which were reportedly being worn by rape victims at the moment they were attacked, are part of a chilling exhibition in Brussels intended to dispel the “stubborn myth” that clothing can be used as justification for sexual violence, according to the news website Flanders News.

The purpose of the
Research and Evaluation (R&E) I
nitiative is to research and evaluate
approaches to combatting domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. By
generating more knowledge about strategies for serving victims and holding offenders
accountable, communities that benefit from VAWA funding will be better equipped to align their
work with practices that are known
to be effective, and they will be more capable of generating
empirical knowledge on the efficacy of new and promising ways of doing things.
I am sitting on a stool, midway through an interview with a news organization about my experience as a survivor of both rape and sexual assault. It’s a weekday. The sun is shining. My curly hair is framing my face.
Across from me, a journalist asks, “What were you feeling when you were being assaulted?”
There's a trial scheduled in March at the marble courthouse in Newark, New Jersey, of a man charged with kidnapping and raping a young woman with an intellectual disability.
That trial is likely to be a quiet one, with little attention, nothing like the feverish national press coverage 25 years ago of the trial — in that same courthouse — in another case of sexual assault of another young woman with an intellectual disability.
Sexual Violence Research Initiative
Gender-based violence is notoriously under-reported — for understandable reasons. Experience of violence is highly stigmatized and victims are often shamed. Respondents may be fearful of retaliation if perpetrators and others find out they have disclosed their experiences. There may also be cultural taboos about disclosing violence, which may be seen as a family issue.
