Posted by caitlinate on March 12, 2009

I wish I could say I was surprised. From an opinion poll commissioned by the British Home Office:

Would you say that a woman SHOULD BE held responsible, should be PARTLY held responsible or should NEVER be held responsible if she is sexually assaulted or raped in the following circumstances?

Full Poll Results.

Thanks to Claire for the link.
