the repeal of Section 157(d) of the Evidence Act

Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS to all women in Singapore! The repeal of Section 157(d) of the Evidence Act is a step forward gender equality.

Section 157(d) of the Evidence Act states that when a man is prosecuted for rape, it may be shown that the victim was of “generally immoral character”.

From here.

RAP will be posting a handful of women-related issues in response of our support for the upcoming SLUTWALK. For a reminder, check out their facebook page here.
