‘I call him my rapist’: Women accusing men of rape take justice into their own hands

Despite police warnings that public shaming could backfire, women across Australia are joining private Facebook groups that share stories about which men to avoid.

“I’m a part of the secret underground feminist mafia that tells all of my friends, and even just women I meet … about who the bad guys are, who the rapists are,” said Anna, a member of one group like this.

“The system isn’t set up to help me. It’s set up to help him. This is our own system.”

Anna said she could think of five men she regularly told her friends to avoid. Even within the last month, she said, she’d cut a man out of her social circle after hearing about his ugly history.
