38 years ago (1983) Cheryl Araujo was heinously gang raped by 6 men in her home town of New Bedford, MA. Of the six rapists only 4 of them were prosecuted. At the time of the trial Cheryl was viciously persecuted by the media, ...labeling the assault her fault. ….
“What is remarkable about the whole exercise is how nothing much has changed. For all the talk about rape recently, for all that has been written, for all the progress supposedly made by the women’s movement, people are still trying to explain the rape by wondering what the victim did to provoke it.” Helen Benedict Virgin or Vamp
