Vice President Joe Biden said many women who are raped or physically abused don't report it because they don't want, in his words, "to get raped again by the system."

"Why do you think women who get raped, so many don't report it? They don't want to get raped again by the system," Biden said. "They don't want to be put through what they had to be put through."

Biden added that many women who are abused are "ashamed" and "embarrassed," saying it takes enormous courage for women to come forward and ask for help after being victims of domestic violence.
