Only 2-8% of rape reports are false, so why is there always doubt surrounding any allegation of it? This VOX article explores the possible answers to this question by taking a look at history and at societal attitudes towards women and their emotions. Highly recommended article! Once certain perspectives are understood, change can be accelerated.
