Gender and gay rights activists admit that although the new law is a significant first step, it will take many more changes -- both social and political -- before rape victims will be able to speak out freely. The fear of being rejected by the justice system and society is still very real, as is the fear of suffering further violence at the hands of aggressors determined to keep victims silent.
