From stolen nudes to 'rape chat': the horrific drama tackling the sexual assault epidemic in UK schools
Natalie has just joined an independent sixth form as a scholarship student. She fancies her friend Alice's brother, Archie - a star pupil destined for Oxbridge. Archie really likes her, too. But his friends use a WhatsApp group to constantly pressure him into having sex (<We're basically paying her fees; she can pay on her knees>) and share links to porn. After a party one night, Archie sends the group a video to pro-ve he has slept with Natalie. A few days later, however, he is confused when an upset Natalie says she doesn't remember anything. <Why are you being like this?> he asks. <Did you use a condom?> she cries. This is the premise for Channel 4's blood-boiling new one-off drama, Consent, which explores how insidious sexual assault has become in the UK education system. It is inspired in part by testimonies on Everyone’s Invited - an online platform where survivors of rape and sexual assault can anonymously share their stories, which prompted an Ofsted review in schools. It reported that 59% of girls and young women between 13 and 21 say they have experienced sexual harass-ment at school or college, but victims <don't often see the point of challenging or reporting this harmful behaviour because it's seen as a normal experience>. The website lists all the institutions that have been named, with many independent schools frequently mentioned.
The show's Bafta-winning executive producer, Aysha Rafaele, has a teenage son, and pitched the drama after hearing about such incidents anecdotally through friends with children at both public and private schools. On deciding where to set the story, she and writer Emma Dennis-Edwards (<We're both state school girls!>) chose a private institution because, they say, rape culture is dealt with differently there. <The state sector is much more rigorous around Ofsted; if what happens in the film was reported in a state school it would get esca-lated – maybe even taken to the police,> says Rafaele. <In the private sector, because money, reputation and branding are involved, it's much more likely that they’re not going to want to deal with it – that’s what the testimonies we read suggest. I know someone who was an English teacher in a private school who said that people knew about a pupil's relationship with a teacher but no one did anything about it … it's not in anyone's interest to deal with it. Money is the difference.>
<The students are the clients,> says Dennis-Edwards, explaining that she chose for Natalie to be a black, working-class scholarship student because it's more relatable to the viewer entering a world only few can afford. <She's worked really hard, then this incident happens and no one has her side, including the head of the school, so she's forced to leave,> says Lashay Anderson, 21, who plays Natalie. This, she adds, shows how institutions <appear to be opening and accepting until something happens and it shows they clearly are not.> While this isn't just a polemic on how much those who attend private schools get away with, the foundations of entitlement they provide for boys to grow up thinking their actions will not have consequences is at the core of the story.>>

<<Mother of UK woman missing with newborn baby issues open letter
The mother of a missing woman who vanished more than a month ago with her newborn baby and her convicted sex offender boyfriend has issued an open letter to her daughter. Virginie de Selliers pledged to stand by Constance Marten, 35, and her grandchild, telling her: <You are not alone in this situation. We will support you in whatever way we can.> Marten and her partner, Mark Gordon, 48, have been travelling around the UK by taxi since their car was found burning on the M61 in Bolton, Greater Manchester, on 5 January. Police believe the couple are sleeping rough in a blue tent and fear for the safety of the baby, who has not had any medical attention since birth in early January. In the letter, sent to the PA Media news agency by a representative for
the family, De Selliers writes: <Open Letter to My Darling Daughter Constance. I know you well enough; you are focused, intelligent, passionate and complex with so much to offer the world. So many of your friends have come forward to say such positive things about you, assuring us of their warmest love and support for you and your family.
You have made choices in your personal adult life which have proven to be challenging, however I respect them, I know that you want to keep your precious new-born child at all costs. With all that you have gone through this baby cannot be removed from you but instead needs looking after in a kind and warm environment. I want to help you and my grandchild. You deserve the opportunity to build a new life, esta-blish a stable family and enjoy the same freedoms that most of us have. Constance, I will do what I can to stand alongside you and my grandchild. You are not alone in this situation. We will support you in whatever way we can. I am ready to do what it takes for you to recover from this awful experience so you can thrive and enjoy motherhood.>
<I love you and miss you, Mum xx.>
It is the first time that Marten's mother has said anything publicly about her daughter's disappearance. The missing couple have so far avoided being traced by the police by moving around frequently and keeping their faces covered in CCTV images. A £10,000 reward is on offer for information that leads to them being found safe.>>

<<David Carrick jailed for life over series of rapes while Met police officer. Carrick, 48, admitted 85 serious offences during 17-year campaign of terror and attacks against women
David Carrick, who believed his position as a Metropolitan police officer made him <untouchable> as he raped, assaulted and inflicted <irretrievable destruction> on at least 12 women before intimidating them into silence, has been jailed for life. The firearms officer, en-trusted to guard parliament and diplomatic sites after the Met missed clue after clue about the danger he posed, will spend at least 30 more years in prison for his 17-year spree of crimes. Carrick, 48, stood in the dock at Southwark crown court, watched in person and via a video link by his victims, to be told by the judge that he was the latest high-profile example of a <malign> abuse of power by a man against wo-men. Carrick, who had pleaded guilty to 85 serious offences including 48 rapes, was finally brought to justice after a woman decided in October 2021 to report the attack on her, almost immediately after another Met officer was jailed for murdering Sarah Everard. The judge, Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb, who ordered Carrick to appear in person for sentencing, said: <You behaved as if you were untouchable. You were bold and at times relentless, trusting that no victim would overcome her shame and fear to report you. For nearly two decades you were proved right.> A spokesman for the attorney general's office confirmed that it had received multiple complaints about the leniency of the sentencing. He added: <The case will of course be considered for referral to the court of appeal.> Victim after victim had told the court they were too scared to report him. The jud-ge said Carrick had taken <monstrous advantage> of his position as a police officer, which gave him <exceptional powers to coerce and con-trol> and that he had betrayed his oath to protect the public and caused <irretrievable devastation>. Cheema-Grubb said of the women Carrick had attacked: <These women are not weak or ineffectual. They were victims of your criminal mindset. The malign influence of men like you in positions of power stands in the way of a revolution of women's dignity.> Media coverage of the single complaint in October 2021 that resulted in Carrick being arrested led others to come forward and allowed a case so compelling to be built that he eventually pleaded guilty. Police believe more victims are yet to be discovered and their investigation into Carrick remains active. It is hoped the case signals to women that the risk of the police, prosecution service and courts failing them is outweighed by the justice it can bring. The judge added: <It is remarkable that with one woman being driven to report an allegation against you, despite your position and power, others felt able to act. Even today, courage calls to courage everywhere and its voice cannot be denied.> Carrick must serve a minimum term of 32 years minus the time he has spent in custody before he can be considered for release.>>

<<Female genital mutilation: Around 125.000 women and girls still affected in France
This Monday February 6th marks the UN's International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation. The practice - which consists of removing a part of the clitoris - is illegal in France. But according to one French NGO, as many as 125,000 women and girls in the country are believed to be affected. Young girls are often mutilated while on holiday abroad with their families. FRANCE 24's journalists Olivia Bizot and Sonia Baritello met up with Assa, who told them about her physical and psychological recovery.>>

<<'Treat rape victims like heroes': the survivor changing voyeurism laws
In the days and weeks after she woke up in a bed with a man she didn't know, with no recollection of how she had got there, Emily Hunt lived a nightmare she couldn’t wake up from. A police rape in-vestigation left her feeling traumatised, a CPS decision not to charge the man she had woken next to left her feeling powerless. Eight years on, she has helped change the law on voyeurism and is a government adviser on rape, and in a book out this week she has a message for other survivors: this is not your fault. We Need To Talk comes as urgent questions about how the justice system in England and Wales treats rape victims and rapists after the conviction of the serial rapist David Carrick, and Hunt says conversation has to get louder. <I want victims to know that they are not alone,> says the research and data expert. <And I want them to know it's not their fault. The rape was not their fault, and the system failing is not their fault.> Hunt's journey has been extraordinary, and punctuated by trauma. Police took her in a state of distress from the hotel room after she woke up at 10.30pm that night in May 2015. The man told Hunt nothing had happened, but told the police they had consensual sex. He was sober, but CCTV footage showed Hunt was intoxicated and he told police he thought she might be mentally ill or on drugs. He was carrying drugs, which he said were LSD and Viagra, but which were not tested. He was arrested, but the CPS decided there was insufficient evidence to charge. <I was treated like somebody who was asking for too much when I was asking for a bare minimum,> she says. <It never occurred to me that I could be let down the way I was.> A year later she learned that he had taken a video of her un-conscious and naked, and masturbated next to her. When she asked the CPS why they hadn't prosecuted the man for voyeurism, they said it was not illegal to film someone naked without their consent. That could have been the end of it. Instead, Hunt, who is originally from New York, set about trying to change the law. In 2019, she crowdfunded and with the help of the Centre for Women's Justice, was allowed to <intervene> in the judicial review of a separate case. The CPS accepted that their decision in Hunt’s case had been unlawful. He was charged with voyeurism, pleaded guilty and in September 2020 was sentenced to a 30-month community order. Then, at the beginning of 2021, she became an independent adviser to the government's rape review - its response to a cataclysmic drop in rape prosecutions. She was part of a successful push to introduce a round-the-clock sexual abuse helpline and has been a champion of Operation Soteria Bluestone, which has lifted the lid on failures and pushes an Al Capone, suspect-focused approach to catching rapists. There is some evidence of improvement - figures published on Thurs-day show that rape convictions in the last quarter are up 41% from record lows in the same quarter in 2019. Hunt is now calling for a national conversation about the prevalence of rape, a wider under-standing of the trauma it causes, and a busting of the rape myths that keep suvivors silent and rapists walking free.>>
