Adrian Goldberg investigates how rape victims and survivors are being failed on both sides of the Anglo/Scottish border.

In England and Wales, an official report has found that rape victims are continually and systematically being failed by the criminal justice system with long delays between reporting a case and a prosecution. Adrian discusses this with Byline Times Chief Social and European Affairs Reporter Sian Norris with Hera Hussein, founder of Chayn, which supports survivors of gender based violence around the world.

Meanwhile in Scotland, there are calls to change a legal provision which campaigners say requires a ridiculously high threshold of evidence, allowing 90% of alleged rapists to walk away without being prosecuted. Adrian hears from Emma Bryson of Speak Out Survivors.

Produced by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
