Victims of Sexual Assault
THE VICTIMS OF RAPE HAVE MANY FACES. Recent studies show that rape is still all too prevalent. Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes. By the age of 18, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be victimized. In fact, you are most likely to be raped by someone you know: a friend, an acquaintance, a relative or even the neighbor next door.
