Rape Statistics

Every minute in America, there are 1.3 forcible rapes of adult women, 78 each hour 1,871 each day, 56,916 each month 683,000 every year.

1 out of 4 college women reported being sexually assaulted sometime during their four years.

Only 10-16% of rapes are reported

Of 123,850 women reporting rape or attempted rape, 41.3% occurred in the daytime, 58.7% occurred at night.

Women who are forceful about resisting a would-be rapist are less likely to be raped and no more likely to be injured than those who resist weakly or not at all.

In a study of 60 women who were assaulted, women who made absolutely no attempt to resist were all raped. It is only by resisting that women have a chance to avoid being raped.
