[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — HIV/AIDS (11 May 2006)

A culture clearly existed in which if a man wanted sexual relations with a woman or wanted to go out with a woman and she said no, it was legitimate for him to rape her, because she would then be no use to anyone and would have no choice but to become his sexual partner. That attitude was...
