I'm all over the map on this topic.  On one hand I know that females are not raped because of their clothing even though historically we tried to make the victims responsible because of what they were wearing.  It was (and sometimes still is) a highly effective prosecutorial strategy to use against  a rape victim, but I personally believe and especially for our younger women that they are being exploited, taught, trained, targeted to be very sexual in social media and/or wherever/however they show up in the world.  As a female, I have personally experienced the impact of the culture defining what is sexy, and then suffering the emotional consequences of not being enough.
