Resource description

Last week’s comments by the Justice Secretary, Ken Clarke, on the reform of rape law for ‘different types’ of rape ignited fury across the political spectrum and in the blogosphere. Mary Evans argues that by setting them in the context of judges and sentencing, Ken Clarke’s comments largely ignore the victims of rape, reinforcing existing privilege and power.
