Shawna Gore October 10 at 214pm A couple of years ago I got called for jury duty and made it through a couple of rounds of dismissals before the remaining candidates were led into a room to meet the judge and defense attorney It was an assault case-a drunk man had assaulted a woman friend of his outside of a nightclub There were 30 potential jurors in the room 12 were women The first question the defense attorney asked of the women in the room was this Have you ever been assaulted by a man? All 12 women in the room said yes-and were asked to publicly describe the abuse Right there in front of everyone All 12 women were dismissed from the pool of potential jurors Not a single woman was eligible to be on that jury-we could not be deemed impartial because of woman's individual history of being abused by men each l think about that case a lot and wonder if any of the men were asked if they had ever assaulted anyone And more and more I see what a jury of peers really means in this society-abusive men excusing the behavior of other abusive men darthlampman Jury Selection and Rape Culture Meme
