A legal expert?s investigation of why some women falsely claim rape, and the devastating effects on those who have been wrongfully accused. For each criminal category, a small percentage of claims are proven to be unfounded. Unfortunately, cases of rape are no exception. As a district attorney in New York City, Linda Fairstein encountered these false claims more than a few times. This kind of accusation not only results in the unjust punishment of innocent men, but also serves to trivialize the experiences of rape survivors. In Why Some Women Lie About Rape,Fairstein draws upon her decades of experience to shed light on this difficult issue, including the motivations behind a false rape accusation. ? Originally published in?Cosmopolitan, this essay is now available in digital format for the first time and?features a new introduction by the author.
