“Drinking is not a crime. Rape is.” is the tagline of the recently launched Christmas campaign from Rape Crisis England and Wales:

The poster goes on to say: “No matter how much she’s drunk… No matter what she’s wearing… No matter if you’ve already kissed…sex without consent is rape.

According to Marketing News: “The posters, which first ran in Scotland, are being distributed by the 44 Rape Crisis centres across the UK into local communities, including shopping centres, sports centres and local libraries.”

It would be good to see them also going up in pubs and clubs.

The Rape Crisis National Freephone Helpline is open from 12-2.30pm & 7-9.30pm every day of the year: you can call them on 0808 802 9999
