Marriott blames victim for rape

A woman was raped at gunpoint in a parking garage at the Marriott and they believed it was her own fault. Please see Stop Family Violence for the details and to take action –

The Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, sued by a woman raped in front of her children at gunpoint in its unmonitored parking garage, claimed she was careless, negligent and “failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities.” Now Marriott International has stated they will drop the “blame the victim” legal defense.  Let Marriott know their response is too little too late, and tell them how they can support the survivor and all women.
