In the latest episode of her comedy sketch show, Tracey Ullman brilliantly demonstrates the absurdity of the line of questioning that many victims often endure when reporting a sexual assault.
“You look quite provocatively wealthy. … Just a bit of an invitation, isn’t it? Like you’re advertising it,” Ullman says to the victim. This is just one of the many sarcastic barbs she flings in the segment.
According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 63% of sexual assaults are not reported to police. While the parody is hilarious, the blame the victim take Ullman illustrates is a serious reminder as to why so many women do not report sexual assaults.
