Closed petition Amend the legal definition of rape so women can be charged with rape

Rape is a crime that is most commonly committed by men against women, however it can also be against men, boys and any other genders. In the current social climate, we have come on massively striving for equality, but the fact a woman cannot be charged with rape is unfair.

More details

Current UK legislation can lead to men and other genders feeling invalidated and could cause mental health issues due to not being believed or being classed as a victim.

We believe this should be changed.
