Rape victims clothing goes on display to prove clothing choice doesn't cause rape

On Monday a new exhibition opens in Belgium displaying clothing worn by rape victims at the time they were attacked is called 'Is it my fault?'.

The exhibition is aiming to fight a "stubborn myth" that provocative clothing is a factor in sexual crimes.

The clothing was loaned by the victim support group CAW East Brabant which includes pyjamas, tracksuit bottoms, dresses are among the items on display.

Liesbeth Kennes told VRT1 radio:

"What you immediately notice when you walk around here: they are all very normal pieces that anyone would wear.

There is even a children's shirt with an image of 'My Little Pony' in the exhibition, which brings home a harsh reality".
