Human Rights

I have been a victim of marital rape more than once and i have spoken to other women who have been through the same. The law needs to change, to protect the victim, to prosecute the perpertrator. Most rape cases dont even get to court!. It is basically the wife's word against the husband's. Please sign this and lets stand up for our rights for more cases to go to court, for husband's to be convicted the same as stranger's are.

    In light of the low % of convictions for rape cases in the UK i fully support this petition in an effort to tackle this serious crime from as many angles as possible. We need to show that as a community we are prepared to support each other and speak out so we can encourage society to realise this is still a very prevalent issue and needs further intervention. We all have a responsiblity so should do what we can, even if this is a small gesture of educating our children about healthy relationships
