Should women go to prison for falsely accusing a man for rape?

There’s been a lot of incidents lately where women have falsely accused men of sexual assault or rape and they have gotten away with it while the defendant is charged and in prison. In most cases the false charges have ruined career and lives. I think that this is absurd and that women should be charged.

Women who accuse someone falsely shouldn’t be able to carry on in there day to day life while the defendant is doing time for a crime he did not even commit.

False accusements shouldn't even be possible in my opinion. There should always be hard evidence.
I know this sounds savage, but it's the only way to prevent false imprisonment.

There's always a certain amount of time in which it's possible to gather physical evidence against the accused. This could be things like semen, skin found under nails, hair found in clothes and other details like that.
Although it's not easy for rape victims to be in the state of mind to go to the police and report the assault, it's of extreme importance that they do if they want their abuser to go to jail. Just like any other crime, evidence should be crucial when it comes to crime. You can't go around pointing fingers at others without any evidence to back up your argument. How crazy would it be if you went to the police a year after your partner got killed, simply pointed your finger at someone you didn't like and they got put behind bars for life for a murder they didn't even know about? Of course, this person might actually be responsible, but there's no way to know for sure without evidence.

It might sound a little harsh to actual rape victims, but I know what I'm talking about. Trust me. I'm a victim myself. Unfortunately, I was too young at the time and too fucked up in the head to know that I was supposed to go to the police immediately after the case with all the evidence I had. Even when he admitted it on MSN a few weeks later, it didn't occur to me that I should show this confession to the police. It was only after a year or so when there was no evidence that I thought about going to the police.
