Should rape victims be able to remain anonymous?

This question was sparked by Naomi Wolf's take on the Julian Assange rape allegations.

If you think about it, rape victims are given some anonymity, as you don't really get to see photos of rape victims in the news, unless they've been murdered. If you are given a name, it'll be in a newspaper, and you'll of forgotten it by tomorrow as it'll be given a small column inch, unless it's a mass rapist.

So when you think about it, rape victims are given anonymity to the general public. It's just unrealistic and ludicrous to have anonymous prosecutors in court, for obvious reasons. Seriously though, what can be changed?

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
