Peru outcry on Red lingerie

Judges dismiss rape case because red underwear indicates “prepared or willing to have sex”

There has been a national outcry in #Peru after a court declared that a woman who wore #redunderwear to a party could not have been raped because the garment signaled she intended to have sex.⁣

The judges said the #victim is not shy and reserved as she claimed, and acquitted the accused #rapist.⁣

‘This type of women’s #underwear is normally used on special occasions leading to moments of intimacy, which gives the impression that the woman [is] prepared or willing to have sexual relations with the accused,’ the judges’ statement read.⁣

The young #woman claims she fell unconscious after she was taken to a #party under false pretenses by the defendant. She says she woke the following day naked in his bed.⁣

The accused maintains that the allegations are an act of ‘revenge’ against him by the victim.⁣

Crowds of #women gathered in protest at the judges’ ruling and held up banners with messages such as: ‘Listen up, judges. Don’t use my underwear to justify rape,’ and ‘Lace is just lace, it’s not an insinuation.’⁣

Peru’s Public Ministry issued a statement on October 30 – a day after the court’s decision – saying they had requested that it be nullified and that a new trial take place in a different court.
