Raising Awareness About ‘Court-Ordered Rape’

0 comments

CALCASA was contacted by a survivor who has been working with attorneys, advocates, and academics to raise awareness and bring an end to a traumatic practice referred to as ‘court-ordered rape,’ or invasive gynecological exams that survivors of sexual assault are ordered to endure in the course of proceedings against their perpetrators.

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 program.

In addition, attorney Melissa Fry Hague from the firm Goldman Scarlato & Penny is available to hear your or your client’s story as she tracks these cases and researches the legal rights for survivors who have been impacted. You can reach Melissa at [email protected] or at 1-484-344-5850.
