Rape Statistics

  • A sexual assault occurs every 73 seconds in America.
  • 433,648 on average every year.
  • The majority of sexual assault victims are under 30; 54% ages 18-34 and 28% ages 35-64.
  • 33% of women who are raped contemplate suicide with 13% attempting suicide.
  • People who are sexually assaulted are more likely to use drugs.
  • 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.

This class is free. Participants will need to be present for all three days, as outlined below, and should wear work-out type clothing, as well as closed toe shoes (no sandals).
