Recent survey in Herald Sun reveals attitudes about rape and violence against women in the general populace
A new VicHealth report reveals one in five people believes that if a woman is drunk or drug affected, then she is partly responsible for rape.
16 per cent believed that women often said “no” when they meant “yes”.

Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said “…Let me put this simply — there is no circumstance where violence against women is understandable or acceptable.”
He said men needed to have hard conversations about changing the language, attitude and misogynist behaviour that lay at the heart of male violence towards women.
Of particular concern was that young people, particularly men, were more likely to have attitudes to violence against women that justify, excuse, trivialise, and shift blame.
VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said it was worrying the number of people who still believed rape and violence were justified and that women were partially to blame.
“A culture that excuses rape and violence is one that allows it to happen,” she said. “Violence is a choice, not an instinct and it is never excusable.”
