Singer Chrissie Hynde has come under fire for suggesting it can be a woman’s fault if she is raped.
“You know if you don’t want to entice a rapist, don’t wear high heels so you can’t run from him,” she said, in an interview in the Sunday Times.
The Pretenders singer, 63, said she takes “full responsibility” after she was sexually assaulted aged 21 in Ohio.
“If I’m walking around in my underwear and I’m drunk. Who else’s fault can it be?” Hynde told Krissi Murison.
In her recently completed autobiography, Reckless, Hynde recounts how she was forced to perform sexual acts on members of an Ohio motorcycle gang who had promised to take her to a party, but instead took her to an abandoned house.
