Myth #1: Rape is a “he said/she said” situation. You hear the phrase “he said/she said” a lot, which falsely suggests that the odds are even that either party is lying when a woman says she was raped. But that’s simply not true. Most reputable research shows that the vast majority of women who report rape are telling the truth.
He said, she said, does not refer particularly to whether people are lying about a rape. Either way. It’s a comment about the fact that it’s something that can be difficult to prove either way. For there’s often only the two witnesses, the activity itself, sex, is both extremely common and entirely legal and whether it’s rape or not turns purely on the issue of consent. To which we’ve only got what he said, she said, as a guide.
