I am saddened to see so many rape stories being written for the blog.
But I should not be surprised as approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year; that's roughly 11 rapes (of adults alone) every hour. These figures include assaults by penetration and attempts.
Rape Crises give the following statistics
- Nearly half a million adults are sexually assaulted in England and Wales each year
- 1 in 5 women aged 16 - 59 has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16
- Only around 15% of those who experience sexual violence choose to report to the police
- Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence
Rape is a severely under-reported crime with surveys showing dark figures of up to 91.6%. Prevalence of reasons for not reporting rape differs across countries.
They may include fear of retaliation, uncertainty about whether a crime was committed or if the offender intended to harm, not wanting others to know about the rape, not wanting the offender to get in trouble, fear of prosecution (e.g. due to laws against premarital sex), and doubt in local law enforcement. - wikipedia
