This graph, put together by the Enliven Project using Department of Justice and FBI data, is super depressing. But it puts in stark visuals something a lot of us know: it’s way more likely for a rapist to walk free than for the rape to be reported or for someone to be falsely accused of rape. So can we stop with media and MRA obsessions over the drummed up threat of fake rape accusations? Can folks please stop assuming everyone who actually speaks up is lying when real rapists are getting away with it all the time?
Update: Amanda Marcotte fact checks the graph, which has some issues with how it interprets the data.
