In Singapore, if a husband rapes his wife, the fact that it’s in marriage exempts him from being charged for rape by the law. I feel that this exemption is unacceptable as it protects rapists and it leaves wives completely unable to press criminal charges despite getting RAPED by another man, even if it is their husbands. This law is archaic and dates back to colonial times, a time where most didn’t have the privilege of acknowledging gender imbalances as we see it in the world today.
Please support this petition to repeal the exemption of marital rape from being charged as rape. Also, if you feel as strongly about this injustice as I do, please invite your friends to sign the petition as well.
