She Is Not Asking For It, No Matter What She's Wearing

When will victim-blaming stop?

Victim-blaming rhetoric is still pervasive in most cultures, but when will it end? 

In this powerful PSA "Still Not Asking For It" posted by media site Sortedd, a woman strips down to get one powerful message across -- It doesn't matter what she is wearing, rape is never her fault. 

"Well, guess what? I don't care if I wear a t-shirt, a dresss, jeans or shorts," says the woman in the video. "If I walk around in a bra, or wear nothing at all, I'm still not asking for it." 

The video ends with a terrifying statistic that every 30 minutes a woman is raped in India. Often she is blamed for the crime.
