Need: Say NO to Victim Blaming! Support needed!
We are a small group from Brisbane, Australia looking to speak out against victim blaming by our politicians. It is the 21st Century and a former journalist, now political candidate for a major political party, has publicly pronounced very damaging views regarding women and rape.
It was discovered that in a column in 2008, King posed the question: If a woman drinks to excess and is raped or assaulted, is she partly to blame?
King wrote: "As uncomfortable and difficult as this question is, the answer surely is yes".

It is VERY scary to think that any person could become a policy maker and seek public office, when there is a complete failure to understand the damage they can do.
PLEASE help us my supporting our petition to SAY NO TO VICTIM BLAMING. This is not a local issue, it is global and we are asking for people to voice their opposition, no matter where they live.
