Victim blaming occurs when victims of a crime or of bad treatment of any kind are blamed for that treatment. It is commonly seen with regard to rape, for instance, when women are blamed because of how they dress, or because they were drinking. It is also seen more broadly, as in this article, in which women are blamed for widespread sexism in the tech industry.
