Striking at one of the most severe questions posed to the rape victims, an exhibition at Belgium aims to prove that clothes have no role to play in inciting rape. 

The exhibition called " Is It My Fault?" is organised at the Centre Communautaire Maritime in Brussels.

It is organised with a motive to prove "a person's outfit can never be seen as a mitigating circumstance or provocation by a rapist" a media report said. 

The exhibit features clothes worn by rape victims at the time of the sexual assault. Items such as pyjamas, tracksuits and also a child's My Little Pony shirt were borrowed from victim support CAW East Brabant.

Citing a training and counselling employee of CAW, the media report said that all the pieces were very normal".

The exhibition will continue till January 20.
