Verdict today is frustrating but not surprising.

The disparity between the estimated cases of rape and those actually reported is huge. The disparity between those reported and those successfully convicted is a gaping chasm. From the offset a victim will be thinking of things like the public reaction to accusations of rape, particularly against people of power.
How they will be questioned in court, how it will be reported, whether the police will even believe them are an immediate dissuasion.
