Abstract

This paper is inspired by the everyday happenings of
cases read in the newspaper.Rape being most common of violence
against woman, is not just sex. Rape is not shown as an ugly
violent act in phonography, but the woman is depicted as
eventually enjoying it and behind her cries are supposedly
the moans of enjoyment and acceptance.
The reasons for rape are almost seen as due to the woman;
her attire, her courage to walk at night and other instances
including morality are used to prove consent on her part.
Further, in the eyes of society, if an unmarried woman is
raped and if it is found out that she is not a virgin at the
time of the alleged rape, there will be almost automatic
inclination to think that perhaps she consented.
It is due to this injustice( if the writer may say ),
that has led the writer to examine the state of the present
law and to make, if possible appropriate proposals and
suggestions .The writer feels that the state of the present
law is not balanced in that it does not confer sufficient
protection to the victim, leading normally, the woman holds
back the charges and refuses to report the case resulting
the offender usually get away scot-free.This therefore,
should be putt-off as history and not as a present happenning
in a civilised society today.
