WHEN IS RAPE OKAY?
Is it when she wears provocative clothes and shows too much skin? Is it when she’s walking the streets alone at night? Is it when she’s laughing and flirting back with a guy she met at a bar because she is trying to be nice? Or Is it when she’s sitting alone at home watching a movie with locked doors and a man breaks in?
People’s opinion on the notion that women remain responsible is still a very real issue. It may not be something that many have the courage to say out loud, however, when we hear of the news that a woman has been raped – our initial thoughts are to question her choices; “why was she alone?”, “why was she wearing that?” and “what did she do to instigate it?”
This project was run to raise awareness on societies indifference towards rape. Yes, it was a confronting experiment and yes it invoked extreme emotion. However, nothing will be at the forefront of people’s minds without igniting that anger, concern and disgust.
Using this, we can collectively work together in making the discussion about rape an essential topic in every household. To contribute towards the prevention of RAPE, we need to TEACH our children from an early age that IT IS NEVR OKAY no matter what the circumstance is. Instead of it being a topic we just shake our heads at when it happens to someone else.
