We don't hear about perpetrators. Headlines always read "Woman raped in Hartlepool", "Study shows 24% students victims of abuse". Unless perpetrators are famous or politically sensitive then reporting is passive...this gives the impression rape 'just happens', ruins lives like a fair-weather thunderbolt.
One suggestion that has picked up momentum is the suggestion that Twitter create a more visible and streamlined 'report abuse' system - in fact, this has become the subject of a growing petition. Whilst I can understand the sincere urge for something to change to stop this horrible abuse, this option in particular does seem as though it could have some unintended consequences.
The pardoning of Marte Delelv validates a system that does not protect women and spreads stigmatisation of women who report rape. Authorities should have quashed the conviction, provided reparations for any suffering caused and publicly committed to ensuring protection for victims of sexual violence. By failing to do so the fear must be that there will be many more cases such as this one.
