Raising Awareness About Court-Ordered Rape

SCCADVASA has been contacted by a survivor who has been working with attorneys, advocates, and academics across the country to raise awareness and bring an end to a traumatic practice of invasive gynecological exams that survivors of sexual assault are required to undergo in some locations across the country in order to proceed with criminal proceedings against their perpetrator. These exams are also referred to as “court-ordered rapes.” Although SCCADVASA has not been made aware of this practice happening in South Carolina, if you are a survivor who has been ordered to undergo such an exam, you can access free, confidential help by reaching out to your local rape crisis center.

More information about this harmful practice can be found at:
