Slandering “accusers”

Shouldn’t “accusers” be able to sue for slander? Albert Hainesworth, for example, called the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct a liar and he vehemently denies the allegation. Victims have been slandered like this before. Even a newscaster said that athletes can be targeted for “the slightest thing”! And we feminists get charged with saying women are always innocent? Ha! You got us beat on this one, guys. (See also the comment on the Superbowl & Domestic Violence post or the post about athletes and impunity -not to mention all the ‘believe women’ posts)
