Statistics show that approximately 1 in 5 women will be raped at some point in their lives, and that more than 40% of women have reported sexual violence other than rape. Men are not exempt; one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives, and more than 20% of men will report sexual violence some time in their lives (National Sexual Violence Resource Center (http://nsvrc NULL.org)).

Often sexual abuse and violence toward women go unreported. An accurate and often used figure is that approximately 1/3 of women have experience sexual and/or physical violence and approximately 1/6 of men have experience sexual and/or physical violence.
