"Women don’t provoke rape, nor can they prevent it. There is no amount of precaution she can take, no amount of clothing she can wear to stop it. Because rape isn’t what happens when a man gets a little hot in the pants after seeing some cleavage. Rape isn’t a response to the sight of a woman’s bare shoulders in a tube top on a warm day. Rape isn’t a risk a woman should run if she flirts with someone at a bar and dares to go home alone rather than with him. Rape is not sex. It’s a crime founded on power, violence, and control, and a man who will rape a woman will rape regardless of what she does, where she is, or what she has on."
