xoJane: Victory! Sara Reedy Gets $1.5 Million After Being Accused of Lying About Her Rape

In debunking myths about rape, the judge sent a clear message to law enforcement and the nation as a whole; I wish all judges were this with it. Rape is complex. The circumstances of rape can be highly variable, chaotic and traumatic. Anyone can potentially be a rape victim, and victims respond in many different ways; there is no wrong or right way to be raped, or to handle a rape. And victims reporting the crime, doing as they’ve been told to do, shouldn’t be abruptly interrogated and turned into suspects.
