A female former gang member has exposed the growing levels of sexual violence against young women who join them, saying that many are willing to risk being raped in return for the status of membership. Isha Nembhard, who was part of an strong gang in Peckham, south London , said some girls readily accepted that they would be sexually abused when associating with male gangs. The year-old said that the problem had reached a point where being raped was becoming "normalised" among many young women. They sleep with a boy and the boy asks if she will sleep with all his friends.

Two year-old men from northern Israel were in custody by midday Thursday, the police said, and a special investigation team was gathering surveillance images, cellphone data and other evidence to try to identify other potential suspects. Israel has been through repeated rounds of soul-searching over cases of sexual assault in recent years, but the Aug. The sheer number of men involved, attributed to a lawyer for one of the two suspects arrested, ignited a storm of outrage.
In October , I attended a pop concert against my parents' wishes. By the end of the night I had been gang raped in circumstances similar to those alleged by the year-old girl accusing several men, including Premiership footballers, of raping her at the Grosvenor House hotel. The men who raped me weren't celebrities and they weren't even rich. In reality they were nobodies. But to me, a year-old girl, only 4ft 11in tall, with very limited experience of the world, they were glamour personified.
