Chilean Laws Make Rape Convictions Difficult

Laws in Chile require evidence a woman has put up a struggle during rape in order to obtain a conviction. The assumption appears to be that unless a woman who is being raped can physically leave evidence on her attacker, then she really was not raped but consented to the sexual encounter.

Evelyn Sandoval was recently attacked, raped and killed by Cristian Tizvado who previously had been accused of ten attacks on women but was not put in prison. I assume when a man is attacked and beaten he is not required to present evidence that he fought back.
