Transcript cused on this. The effective use of the media is essential to furnishing information to the older woman so as to insure her informed participation in the decisionmaking process which continuously affects the quality of her life and the life of her community. Mandatory retirement shall be phased out. fs RAPE Federal, State and local governments should revise their criminal codes and case law dealing with rape and related offenses to: • Provide for graduated degrees of the crime with graduated penalties depending on the amount of force or coercion occurring with the activity. • Apply to assault by or upon both sexes, including spouses as victims. • Include all types of sexual assault against adults, including oral and anal contact and use of objects. • Enlarge beyond traditional common law concepts the circumstances under which the act will be considered to have occurred without the victim's consent. • Specify that the past sexual conduct of the victim cannot be introduced into evidence. • Require no more corroborative evidence than is required in the prosecution of any other type of violent assault. • Prohibit the Hale instruction* where it has been required by law or is customary. Local task forces to review and reform rape law and practices of police, prosecutors, and medical personnel should be established where they do not now exist. Such task forces should also mobilize public support for change. Rape crisis centers should be established (with Federal and State funding) for the support of victims and the confidentiality of their records should be assured. Bilingual and bicultural information resources should be made available where necessary. 24
