Thank you for that question mark, because that
"up dramatically" is definitely in question. It is
clear that at least _part_ of that increase is due
to increased _reporting_ -- one of the effects of
feminism/"women's lib"/whatever you want to call
it is that women aren't afraid to point the finger when
they're raped.
