Telegraph pulls article claiming women who dress provocatively more likely to be raped
Women who drink alcohol, wear short skirts and are outgoing are more likely to be raped, claim scientists at the University of Leicester.
Psychologists found that all three factors had a baring on whether men would force a woman into having sex.
They found that the skimpier the dress and the more outgoing the woman, the less likely a man was to take no for an answer.
Sophia Shaw at the University of Leicester said that men showed a "surprising" propensity to coerce women into sex, especially those that were considered promiscuous.
"The research seems to show that men are not so much charming women into bed as coercing them," she said. "I was quite surprised how far ordinary men were prepared to go."
Many men admitted they would go to within a point of rape before realising the girl was not interested in sex.
