Rape Law: If She Says No, She Means NoPublished during Rape Awareness Week, this opinion article discusses the historic tendency in rape trials to blame the crime on the victim. The writer notes a recent change of attitudes in Massachusetts in the wake of three prominent rape trials, wherein juries concluded that, if the victim said no, the sexual act constituted a rape. The writer supports the emergence of the "no means no" ethos.
