anti-rape device

Julia and I stumbled over this while looking for readings for KMD2003: Knowledge Media Design and Learning, and had to stop to discuss it

Alex Halavais notes:

A South African woman is to begin marketing artificial dentata as an anti-rape device. (Strikes me that a wide-spread effort to teach girls a martial art at a young age might be more effective.)

BBC NEWS | Africa | S Africa 'rape trap' condemned:

Anti-rape campaigners in South Africa are outraged about a new invention intended to catch rapists. The device, designed for a woman to insert, attaches itself to a rapist and has to be surgically removed.
