“Our society has a history of downplaying the seriousness of violence against women and re-victimizing the brave women who come forward to seek justice,” said O’Neill.

“NOW will closely monitor how law enforcement, the courts and the media handle the Strauss-Kahn case. Blaming and shaming the woman who was allegedly attacked and employing gender, racial, ethnic, economic or other stereotypes to discredit her are absolutely unacceptable.”
