Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time when we raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate individuals on how to prevent sexual violence and where to seek resources.

What is Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault includes any sexual behavior that is against the will of another person (often through manipulation, force, or coercion). Types of sexual assault include rape, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, incest, and same-sex assault.

Did You Know?
  • Every 2 minutes someone in the USA is sexually assaulted. 
  • Each year there are about 293,000 victims of sexual assault.
  • 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted while at college.
  • 42% of college women who are raped tell no one about the assault.
  •  1 in every 4 girls and 1 in every 6 boys will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday.
