Feedback: In Response To Berghan On Ms Prendergast

Feedback: In Response To Dayna Berghan On Ms Prendergast

I read Dayna Berghan's opinion piece on Ms Prendergast's unhelpful and politically inclined comments on women in inner Wellington City. In it she states a meeting should be held with men involved so that "we" can educate the community that rape and sexual assault is not to be tolerated in the community.

The overwhelming majority of men would already agree with her without the need to attend a meeting. Getting a bunch of men into a meeting is not going to change the behaviour of rapists or sexual predators of either sex.

Not all men are rapists and not all all sexual predators are men.
