Don’t blame us for rape, say miniskirted Jakarta women

Scores of women and children wearing colorful miniskirts and tight leggings gathered in central Jakarta on a Sunday, outraged by a public official’s comments that provocatively dressed women are to blame for sexual assaults. The protest was in response to remarks by the Indonesian capital city’s governor Fauzi Bowo, who said on Friday that women must not wear revealing clothes to avoid being raped or victimized.
