* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' provides us with an example of shaming by legislation. The extra, in-game index describes how courtesans (by that time, a word meaning, essentially, "whores") were by law more and more circumscribed and sharply defined in dress and hairstyle in an effort to eliminate their profession from polite society.

* In second series of ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' avoids this in universe - Kate Bishop dismiss the idea that going to bed with a guy on first date makes her a slut - but faces it in real life - apparently the angry letter from issue #3, that was accusing both Kate and Noh-Varr of not being role models and saying having sex makes them "instantly unlikable" was actually one of the few printable letters and one of few not trying to put all the blame on her. {{Creator/Kieron Gillen}} addressed the thing on his Tumblr and made it clear that not only he disagrees with this line of thinking, but it personally offends him.

* Played in ''"Batteries"'', as Ryuuko is noted to be a stripper and a prostitute but, generally, the story treats her as flawed but conplex person with issues who resorted to those things to provide for herself. Likewise, the other characters see her someone who needs help and really wants to help her, worrying about her well- being, and, like Satsuki, would like her to come home, while Nonon goes so far as to call her "the Hoe" in one chapter, to which she's called out on.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': As part of the Handmaids' training, they have the group shame a young woman who was gang-raped, as she supposedly "[[GoodVictimsBadVictims led them on]]". This is particularly poignant since Offred is mentioned as writing against sexual assault before in a flashback.

* In ''Literature/SorcererOfTheCrown'', Prunella is mistaken for a prostitute simply because she travels with Zacharias (even though she is accompanied by a female servant specifically to prevent damage to her reputation), and is not even given ''food'' in the inn they stay at. When a servant questions this mistreatment, she is told by the innkeeper that a ''decent'' woman would rather have died than allowing herself to sink so low.
