This week AWAVA has continued to follow media reports on victim-blaming and rape cultures in the aftermath of John Law’s comments and the US Steubenville trial.  As the week draws to a close, it’s a good time to remember that the struggle to end all forms of violence against women and to challenge the everydayness of sexism and misogyny continues, both here and internationally.
