Washington Post reporters have been documenting rape cases in Washington state for more than a decade.
Since 2009, more than 100,000 rape kits have been submitted to the state, according to the State Police.
In a new report, The Washington Times reports on how a rape victim can reach out to a sexual predator and discuss their relationship.
It’s an approach that some rape victims say could make the difference between being able to end a sexual relationship and being unable to.
“I think it’s a great way to talk about the situation and the relationship,” said one woman who requested anonymity.
And if it were me, I wouldn’t have been able to make that choice. “
I’m glad I didn’t have to go through this, because I was afraid of losing my life and it would have been a whole different situation.
And if it were me, I wouldn’t have been able to make that choice.
It would have just been impossible.”
The report’s author, Lauren Fuchs, said the goal of the research was to provide more support for rape survivors and to educate those who are at risk about the importance of talking to a perpetrator.
“A lot of people will say, ‘I’m not going to talk,’ or ‘I don’t want to talk,'” she said.
“But the thing is, if you’re in a relationship, you really do want to hear what they have to say.”
In one case, a man raped a woman on a plane that had already departed from Seattle.
He then threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the attack.
The victim contacted the Washington State Patrol and reported the incident.
The man was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree rape.
Fuchs said her research found that about a third of women who reported sexual assault were willing to talk.
However, most women are hesitant to tell their stories because of the stigma attached to rape.
“If they can’t talk, what hope do they have?”
“A lot is about making it very clear to the person who you’re talking to that there’s something wrong and that they’re not going anywhere.
That it’s going to be painful.”
Fuchs also said the study shows that the importance to talking to someone who is a victim of rape cannot be understated.
“It’s the best way to prevent something from happening in the first place,” she said, “and that’s a huge advantage.”
The study is part of the Washington Department of Corrections’ Rape, Abuse and Incest Reporting Project.
