victim-blaming, Sussex Police
I go to University and recently heard from a student who was attacked by a fellow student. She was encouraged to go to the Police by staff who she told in confidence, but the Police told her "are you sure it wasn't flirting?" and encouraged her to drop the charges because it would affect his studies. I was shocked and appalled. It's 2013. The authorities must be made to answer for this sort of horrific victim blaming.
