In an open letter to the president of Rai, the journalists’ association, and the communication authority, hundreds of intellectuals, journalists, writers, and activists express their outrage over the interview of a rape survivor on a prime-time show. They criticize the host for forcing the victim to relive the abuse and for the lack of sensitivity and respect shown during the interview. They demand that Rai take responsibility for the mishandling of the sensitive topic and ensure that gender violence is treated with competence and ethics in the future. They call for a public apology and a commitment to proper journalistic and public service standards. This comes in light of the upcoming International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25th.
