The statistics are shocking and overwhelming.
It is estimated that over 40% of South African women will be raped in their lifetime and that only 1 in 4 rapes are reported. It is also estimated that 14% of perpetrators of rape are convicted in South Africa.
Did you know Rape and other sexual assaults are commonly available in industrialized countries, and are becoming more common throughout the world?
46.4% lesbians, 74.9% bisexual women and 43.3%
heterosexual women reported sexual violence other
than rape during their lifetimes.
34% of people who sexually abuse a child are family
12.3% of women were age 10 or younger at the time
of their first rape/victimization, and 30% of women
were between the ages of 11 and 17.
We need to stand together against these crimes and lower these statistics. We are all human and every individual has the right to live their life to the fullest and not have to worry about being sexually abused.
