Sexual violence is a serious public health problem in the United States where 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men report that they have been raped or experienced an attempted rape. These figures don’t reflect victims of other types of sexual violence, or the many victims who are afraid to report such crimes.
If you have been or are currently being victimized, please seek help. You can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-4673; visit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN); or find resources in your state.
