Brazilians Pose Nude to Protest Widespread Belief That Rape Is Justified Viral hashtag translates to #IDontDeserveToBeRaped

We've seen #nomakeupselfies and #cockinasock, all in the name of cancer awareness, but the latest in viral activist hashtags is #EuNaoMereçoSerEstrupada, which translates to #IDontDeserveToBeRaped.

In a survey done by Brazil's Institute of Applied Economic Research, an astonishing 65.1 percent partly agreed with the statement that if a women is provocatively dressed, she deserves to be sexually assaulted. The results were met with public outcry—spearheaded by Brazilian journalist Nana Queiroz (shown above), and since, women have been posting photos of themselves partially nude with signs stating "I don't deserved to be raped," and, "No women deserved to be raped."

The survey results revealed other shocking information: 58.5 percent of people surveyed in Brazil agreed with the statement "If women knew how to behave, there would be less rape." In case you think the survey is an indictment of Brazilian men, it's worth noting that two-thirds of the respondents were women.

(Translation: "No woman deserves to be raped. I am ashamed of being a man and having to say something so obvious.")
