End Sexual Assault

The Facts

Every 68 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted.
  • And every 9 minutes that victim is a child. 
1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime.
About 3% of American men—or 1 in 33—have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.

  • 433,648 Americans 12 and older were sexually assaulted or raped.
  • 18,900 military experienced unwanted sexual contact.
  • 60,000 children were victims of “substantiated or indicated” sexual abuse.
  • 80,600 inmates were sexually assaulted or raped. 
Effects of Rape

94% of women who are raped experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during the two weeks following the rape.

The average number of rapes and sexual assaults against females of childbearing age is approximately 250,000. Thus, the number of children conceived from rape each year in the United States might range from 7,750—12,500.

Approximately 70% of rape or sexual assault victims experience moderate to severe distress, a larger percentage than for any other violent crime.

People who have been sexually assaulted are more likely to use drugs than the general public.

  • 3.4 times more likely to use marijuana.
  • 6 times more likely to use cocaine.
  • 10 times more likely to use other major drugs.
