in the United States alone, every two minutes somebody is sexually assaulted. Over 90 percent of the victims are girls and women.
One in six women in the United States has been sexually assaulted; 60 percent of rapes are not reported. Almost all perpetrators, about 99 percent, are men.
sexual assault is neither an aberration nor an abrupt tear in the social fabric. It is, rather, a routine fact of social life.
