Sexual Assault

It is estimated that one in six American women have been the victim of an attempted or completed sexual assault in their lifetime  (National Institute of Justice, 1998) and nine of every 10 rape victims were female (Dept. of Justice, 2003). Possibly the most shocking statistic is that approximately 2/3 of rapes were committed by someone known to the victim (Dept. of Justice, 2005).
