Jill Saward campaigner RIP

Today we grieved over the death of dear Jill Saward who died after a stroke at only 51 years of age. Jill was a great campaigner for women's rights and treatment by the courts when they suffered sexual violence and rape. Jill waived the right of anonymity after her brutal rape ordeal in what was known as the Vicarage Rape Case. At the time society and the judiciary failed to appreciate the trauma, the suffering, the pain and the humiliation of rape. Sentences for rapists were woefully lenient.
