Amanda Crane’s rape story appears in THE SUN newspaper today.
When Amanda was 17, she was raped by her boyfriend of five months. A virgin, he had been nagging her to go to bed but when she said she didn’t feel ready, in a rage he raped her anyway.
It was a terrifying experience that took her years to come to terms with. So when she read a survey this week that many young men don’t take no for an answer from a girlfriend, she was naturally horrified. She was also shocked that some young men also think it’s fine to have sex with a woman almost unconscious from drink or drugs.
Amanda waived her anonymity to put her opinion on this survey in a news article printed in The Sun newspaper today.
