    What do you think of this programme?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/fromfacttofiction/pip/me6b9/

    I have to say that I found it quite extraordinary that the BBC would chose to portray rape in a ‘humorous’ radio programme; it appears to both trivialise the crime of rape and the issue of consent.

    I was raped not only by my ex-husband but the the courts in cheyenne wy. My ex-husbands current wife works in the districts attorneys office so there was no way i was going to get justice from the courts.
    we need to unite togthter and fight for our rights.

  3. Nick, thanks for bringing this programme to our attention – it is rather close to the bone. Carmen, I am so sorry that this happened to you. There is a list of links to support groups at this link: http://www.google.com/Top/Society/Support_Groups/Rape/ There are discussion groups attached to these websites so I hope that these might be of help.
