On International Women’s Day the British were regaled with this ‘advance’ in the cause of women’s rights. In rape trials like the one described here a woman can ask to give her evidence from behind a curtain, her name will never be known and had this young man been sent to the nick there is every chance his accuser would be £20,000 better off in damages or criminal injury compensation.
As the girl in question explained to her flatmate, “I wasn’t into it”. Shame she didn’t think of that when she approached Lewis in a bar and invited him to come back to her hall of residence for anonymous, no-strings sex. “I don’t want to know you afterwards – I just want to **** you,” she explained.

Why have such ‘trials’ at all? It cannot be long before all a woman needs to do is to go to the police station say she has been raped and the alleged rapist will be sentenced administratively.
