The danger of victim blaming, explained in one glorious sentence.
Last night, something very important happened on The Project.
The panel, including hosts Carrie Bickmore and Waleed Aly and regulars Peter Helliar and Steve Price, were discussing singer Chrissie Hynde’s recent comments regarding victim blaming and sexual assault.
In case you missed it, Hynde recently made headlines after claiming she was responsible for her own rape at age 21 because of the way she was dressed when she was attacked:
“You know, if you don’t want to entice a rapist, don’t wear high heels so you can’t run from him.
“If you’re wearing something that says ‘Come and f*** me’, you’d better be good on your feet… I don’t think I’m saying anything controversial am I?”
The panel weighed in on Hynde’s opinion – and as usual, Aly had something brilliantly sensible to say.
