Some numbers to actually be angry about.
The percentage of sexual violence committed by an offender who was a family member, intimate partner, friend, or acquaintance.
Every year, approximately 293,000 Americans are victims of sexual assault. An incident occurs once every 107 seconds.
Only 32% of victims ever report crimes to the police, which means 68% go completely unreported. Correlating to the numbers above, nearly 200,000 instances of rape and sexual assault are endured silently.
For every 100 instances of rape and sexual assault, only two ever lead to conviction and prison.
