Rape Victim's Bill of Rights sign now

The Rape Victims Bill of Rights





We, the undersigned, do hereby affirm the right of the victims of rape. We champion their rights from the law enforcement establishment, the university judiciary system, and from society at large. We believe that it is only when everyone is aware of the rights stated below that rape victims can receive the full dignity and level of service that they deserve. We hope that by enumerating these rights, one day the stigma and blame of rape will be lifted from the shoulders of victims and placed where it belongs: with the perpetrators. We state below the rights that victims should receive from the state, the university, and from the laws of human compassion:











1. The right to be treated with dignity





2. The right not to have to speak about the assault





3. The right not to have his or her actions judged (Why were you dressed like that, why were you drinking, etc.)





4. The right to not be blamed for the assault





5. The right to not be judged





6. The right to not have to justify his or her actions





7. The right to be a rape victim, even if the rapist was his or her boyfriend, date, acquaintance, husband, etc.





8. The right to be taken seriously





9. The right to a safe environment





10. The right to change living conditions if he or she continues to feel unsafe





11. The right to be accompanied to the emergency room and the police station by a friend, relative, or trained counselor from a rape crisis center





12. The right to medical attention





13. The right to information about sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy





14. The right to emergency contraception in the state of North Carolina





15. The right to talk to a counselor, either on campus or through a hotline or counseling service





16. The right to report the attack to the police.





17. The right not to report the attack to the police





18. The right to file a report with a female officer





19. The right to ask for police reports about the assault





20. The right to report the rape to university officials





21. The right, in an on-campus hearing, to have other people present





22. The right, in an on-campus hearing, to be informed of the outcome of the hearings
