8. They got the same results in a recent poll. Here it is

The poll of 1,000 adults found that 54 per cent of women believe rape victims should be held accountable for their attack.

Women were more likely than men to blame victims, with those aged between 18 and 24 the most likely to judge.

Twenty-four per cent of this age group said wearing a short skirt, accepting a drink or having a conversation with the rapist made victims partly responsible...

'But rape can happen to anyone in any circumstances. It's particularly worrying that younger women are more likely to hold people responsible for what happens to them. The 18-24 age group were more likely to say that engaging in conversation in a bar or accepting a drink makes them partially responsible.'


Poll conducted by: Wake Up To Rape

I'm guessing these are British women, so probably more progressive than the US.
