When is it legal to rape a woman?

When she's your wife and you're a man living in the US state of Tennessee.

Tennessee Guerilla Women have more on how the effort to remove the 'spousal exemption' from the state's rape law appears to be failing for the tenth time in a row.

We will resist the temptation to make any links between the high proportion of right-wing fundamentalist Christians in Tennessee and the fact that the 'spousal exemption' continues to exist.
