Here are some numbers…
1 in 6 women have experienced a sexual assault. 1 in 33 men have, too.
Someone is sexually assaulted every two minutes. More than 200,000 people a year.
More than HALF of those assaults will not be reported.
97% of rapists will not spend a day in prison for their crime.Again, I know this is not easy stuff to think about or talk about. But I hope this month, we’ll try. I encourage you to find out more. Visit RAINN for more information and statistics or for ways to get involved in your community.
If you or someone you know needs help or has questions, you can call the free, confidential 24/7 National Sexual Assault Hotline and speak with a trained advocate. They can talk with you about anything or they can direct you to your local hotline, as well.
Please feel free to email me or leave a comment if you have questions or thoughts about this issue. I would really love to hear from you.
