Sexual Assault

Sexual violence affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), an American is sexually assaulted every 73 seconds; 1 out of every 6 American women, and 1 out of every 33 American men, has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape. College women face a 3x greater risk of assault, RAINN says; 13 percent of all graduate and undergraduate students experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation.
