Abstract: 

The unprotective and in some cases negative approach taken by societies in regards to sexual victims along with some other wrong measures taken by judiciary system cause the condition of these victims to deteriorate.
Negation of injuries done to victims, neglecting them along with covering up the crime and even labeling the victims as pervert are among the most important factors which make them vulnerable.
In the policy making level the following factors in revictimity can be mentioned:
Lack of legal reaction on the part of the criminal justice system, taking a suppressive stance with regard to some groups of victims (considering victims as offenders) and finally taking an unprotective and unexclusive stance towards those victims who are recognized as sexual victims by not taking into account their problems during the criminal procedure.
