Would the rape have to happen right in front of the quester? Perhaps for initiate level initiation quest it would suffice to have a rapist available? Perhaps this is what tends to happen to those outlawed for rape near Babeester Gor temples--they get given to the cult. So in the material world, at that station she'd meet the rapist and probably be told of his deeds--most likely another woman would stand in for 'everywoman' and recite his crimes, then the quester would bring Babeestor Gor's punishment to him.
Of course, in the absence of a clear cut rape case, and initiations needing to get done, perhaps they'd get a little symbolic? Take an outlaw, because some outlaws are rapists? Or capture a member of a military unit known (or even accused) of committing rapes? For that matter, anyone who has abused or pillaged an earth shrine might also qualify? I suspect that at times the Babeestor Gor definition of rapist might get a bit inclusive for the comfort of some of their neighbors...
