Rape reform advocate & professor gets $701,500 to explore barriers to reform

Filed under: Sex Abuse / CYF — Lukenz @ 11:50 am Wed 5th November 2014

Criminologist Jan Jordan author of ‘The word of a woman’ has just been awarded $610,000 + GST to explore barriers to rape reform.

The money was awarded from the Marsden Fund.

Jan Jordon an advocate for lowing the threshold well below the standard of any other crime to hopefully allow more men to be jailed for suspected rape.

Why not get someone who is fair and balanced and has not yet formed an opinion before they set out on this quest. See Jan’s over-priced book here called “The word of a woman“.

It is my opinion the only barrier to lowering the threshold any further is the public knowledge of;

1. The constant flow of false rape complaints.
2. Statements being renamed as evidence when they are just statements.
3. Clear identification of police rewriting evidence.
4. Massive rewards from ACC.
5. Easy prospect for a scorned woman who has not been raped to settle a score.
6. Silver bullet to resolve custody disputes.

I don’t think Jan Jordan even considers the male victims of false complaints or unwarranted trials. Seemingly being 87% of the time when trials are held and the males name is released way before the trial. How about doing a study on the make victims and their families!


  1. What a pointless exercise.
    Large amounts of work is already undertaken to understand this issue already.
    It is well understood.

    Not one cent has been spent on examining female sex offending and how the police let the offenders get away with it.

    The Marsden fund is for blue sky research.
    Why is nobody researching the effects on men of women lying about being on the pill.
    Or mothers having sex with thier sons, and women having sex with under 16 males.
    Or women lying on birth certificates, and how the police do nothing even when the offender is caught.

  2. Police have a rape division in their force and in most police stations. When I inquired about a case for a young man, they turned up at my door to follow up which I was not expecting.

    They told me it is very difficult to get to court let alone a conviction and that they tell all families this before they pursue a case. They want families to be prepared for heartache and what may come from the perpetrator getting off.


    I personally think lobby is needed for male victims to make the process easier for victims. For starters, young men find it very difficult to tell their story to attractive young women police.

    Women can feel empowered getting an attractive young male police officer’s attention, sympathy, compassion, etc but it doesn’t work the same for young men and attractive police women.
