Dan Rather reports: An excerpt from Corrective Rape

A Dan Rather report on the revolting and disturbing practice of ‘corrective rape’ in South Africa.

“Dan Rather Reports, March 1, 2011 at 8pm ET on HDNetFifteen years after the end of apartheid, South Africa is struggling to implement the laws in its progressive constitution. Gays and lesbians in South Africa have more rights than many gay Americans, but that’s doesn’t mean they are safe. Lesbians are often the victims of corrective rape — a horrific crime where men sexually violate them in an effort to “correct” or “cure” their sexual orientation. Several non-governmental organizations claim corrective rape is on the rise, fuelled mostly by a growing homophobia in Africa.”
