    It is one of power and control.  Your premise is wrong.

      All I was talking about is the evidence issue, the trend of saying a woman was lying if there's not enough evidence for a conviction in a courtroom, and the societal dragging up of a woman's sexual past after rape accusations - which is a well-known phenomenon that has been lessened in the courtroom in recent years and not so much everywhere outside it including while she's making an initial report to the police.

      Nothing about the motivations of the offender or the nature of the crime.
