I am just trying to understand this.

I believe it’s about how women are often treated after they’ve been sexually harassed or raped.

Me, I’ve always been an eye-for-an-eye sort of guy. If a woman is harassed, the harasser deserves opprobrium. (Maybe a bit more, to help curb any future behavior or serve as an example.) If a man rapes someone, he deserves years in prison.

But women are often told to think of the consequences for their assailants, as though they deserve to have their lives free of consequence—this is the point of the cartoon.
