Transcript VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN BECKY MONROE 486-8616 'Stop Rape' rally protests violent acts BY JONATHAN DAHL Chronicle Staff Three women stood outside City Hall and delivered .tales of what it was like to be raped. They were only actresses, but the accounts were real and a few worsen irjitfie audience were moved to tears. "I still remember the rape as though I was watching it happen," one woman read. "I just knew he was going to kill me," said another. "One by one those creeps came in," said the third. "All I want now is a peacefulness, when I can forget all the violence done to me and to other women every day," one speaker concluded. The readings were part of a "Stop Rape" rally that drew more than 400 women and a handful of men Thursday night. Organizers said the scripts were written from ♦police reports of rapes here. Organizers from the Women's Center, which runs the city's main shelter for abused women, said they arranged the rally to call attention to the rape of a woman by four men on a softball field here in April. Rhonda Hall-Sims, president of the Black Women's Alliance, a non-profit group of professional women, said one woman in six will be raped in their lifetime; more than half the assaults will occur in the home and half of the victims will know their attackers. Dressed in black, Nikki Van Hightower, head of the Women's Center, said two-thirds of the hospitals here will not treat rape victims, because officials call it "too troubling, too bothersome and too time-consuming." She drew the evening's loudest applause when she called it a "sloppy, unconscionable act" that the hospitals that do treat rape victims force them to carry their rape kits home and keep them until police pick them up. Local woman attacked J repeatedly by three men A 34-year-old woman was raped by three hispanic men sometime between 12:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., Monday morning, according to police reports. The report said, the three men offered to take the victim to breakfast. Instead, they drove to a field near Highway 35, where all three men raped the woman. The three men then drove the woman to a house on Third Street, across from a church. There she was raped again, by one of the men, in the backyard of the house. The victim then left the house on foot and walked to the Tic-Toe Store at Maiii and Broadway, where a patrol unit picked her up and gave her a courtesy ride to her residence. The victim said she did not know the name of the men but though she could identify them. The crime was not reported until 1:10 p.m., later that day. The report also stated that the victim was bruised and had several ant bites on her body.
