NSVRC and OAESV recently released a statement to follow up on the findings in the Steubenville case. “Turn off the victim blaming. Turn on support for survivors.” discusses some of the negative media feedback that has surrounded the case. I kind of feel like that title alone is all you really need to get from this post today. Why are we still talking about victim-blaming? The message must not be clear yet.
