Rape is the only crime in which a victim must prove his or her innocence.

According to the article "Blaming Victims Promotes Rape"
The incidence of false rape reports in the United States is 1 percent to 2 percent. This is the same incidence as false reports of burglary. Do we blame all survivors of burlaries for false reports? The answer is no, so why are we doing it to rape victims?
