Rape is a grievous offense. It is inherently harmful and may have serious repercussions for victims. It has been happening across cultures since the beginning of time. It has been misrepresented and disregarded far too frequently. Rape is a multifaceted, complex problem. It is one of the most contentious topics and presents a problem for modern thinking. Perhaps the most underreported crime is this one. However, despite changes in the law, investigational practice and procedure, prominent media coverage, and victim support services, it is on the rise. However, very few offenders are prosecuted, and the victims are frequently held accountable for the crime. Rape is a significantly more complicated issue to address than most other crimes.
