Rodrigo Duterte slammed after 'dangerous and distorted' rape joke
Rodrigo Duterte has been condemned by women's rights groups after the Philippine president joked about the number of rape case in the southern city of Davao. At a public event on Thursday, Duterte suggested that the high number of rape cases recorded in Davao was due to the 'many beautiful women' in his home city. "They say there are many rape cases in Davao," Duterte said at the event in Cebu. "Well, for as long as there are many beautiful women, there will be many rape cases, too."
