It is a sad fact that women need to be careful when they are out on their own in every nation in the world.
Some nations are more dangerous than others.
A recent topic in this forum highlighted this by telling the story of two women who were assaulted in China
in the span of only one week.

But as bad as this is, it is much worse in the USA.
Every single day an average of 230 violent sexual assaults are reported by law enforcement agencies.

Many more go unreported. Unfortunately many women in the USA do not want to go through another trauma of being
portrayed as the instigator of the sexual attack in a court of law by the defense attorneys of these rapists.
Women often find themselves having to defend themselves for simply being out and about in the defense attorney's
efforts to get there client "off the hook".

Here are some statistics on rape in America provided by the government agency, the CDC
The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey is a report sponsored by the CDC.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released a study suggesting that rates of sexual violence in
the United States are comparable to those in the war-stricken Congo.

U.S. STATISTICS

Fact #1: Over 22 million women in the United States have been raped in their lifetime. (National Intimate Partner and
Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #2: 18.3% of women in the United States have survived a completed or attempted rape. (National Intimate Partner
and Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #3: Of the 18.3% of women who have survived rape or attempted rape, 12.3% were younger than age 12 when
they were first raped, and 29.9% were between the ages of 11 and 17. (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence
Survey 2010)

Fact #4: Every 90 seconds, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted. (Calculation based on 2012
National Crime Victimization Survey. Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. Department of Justice)

Fact #5: One out of every five American women has been the victims of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.
(The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010)

Fact #6: Approximately 1,270,000 women are raped
each year. Another 6,646,000 are victims of other sexual crime, including sexual coercion, unwanted sexual contact,
or unwanted sexual experiences. (Department of Justice 2010).

Fact #7: 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12; 29% are age 12-17; 44% are under age 18; 80% are
under age 30; ages 12-34 are the highest risk years. (Department of Justice 2010)

Fact #8: Girls ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape,
or sexual assault. (Department of Justice 2010)

Fact #9: Most female victims are raped before the age of 25, and almost half of female victims are under the age of 18.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
