Should rape be treated as a personal injury for which damages are payable?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2547727/Women-drunk-men-risk-rape-says-agony-aunt-Irma-Kurtz-faces-backlash-latest-advice.html

and for which contributory negligence is also attributable?

How typical of Jane Garvey of Woman's Hour to imply that women must always right, even when they are clearly wrong.  That programme does more to lower and corrupt the morals of this nation than any kind of pornography.

A quantum of damages could be established.

How should damages be calculated and assessed?

It should always be enough to make the woman half hope that the rapist would do it again.

Should all rape victims be compensated at the same rate?  Surely it is insulting to award a rape victim who is a virgin the same amount as a prostitute? It is after all the greatest injustice to treat unequal things equally.

Many interesting questions are raised by this proposal and I am sure lawyers will have fun discussing and solving this problem.
