Rape Crisis News 14 : Special legal issue
Rape Crisis News 14 : Special legal issue

Issue 14 of Rape Crisis News has a particular focus on legal matters, and appeared at a pivotal moment for survivors' rights.
The outcome of a judicial review published in the 12th February 2016 marked a significant step forward for the right to privacy of complainers in sexual offence cases, while the Evidence and Procedure Review initiated by Lord Carloway and published on 26th February 2016 offered some radical and welcome proposals for changes in the way that the justice system engages with children and vulnerable witnesses, including survivors of sexual offences. In an interview in this issue, Lord Carloway outlined some of the background to these potentially transformative proposals.

Ann Moulds looked at stalking on campus and its links with sexual crime; we also caught up with GU FemSoc & gained an insight into feminist perspectives at Glasgow University. Emma Cooper wrote about the barriers facing women studying & undertaking careers in STEM (Science Technology, Engineering & Maths) subjects, Sarah Young looked at sexual violence on campus, reviewed ‘The Hunting Ground’ and interviewed its director Kirby Dick. The issue also covered work undertaken by the local rape crisis centre in Aberdeen with students there.
