Just the Facts..

As Joe Friday would say…Just the Facts

 

The statistical facts on the assault on women are alarming at best. The ones seen on the evening News or on Nancy Grace on CNN are just a shadow of what’s going on. PepperEyes.com has pulled these facts for you to examine. We believed that by alerting women with the knowledge and the tools such as Pepper Spray and Stun Guns we can reduce these numbers.
THE FACTS

SEXUAL ASSAULT
. Every year approximately 132,000 women report that they have been victims of rape or attempted rape, and more than half of them knew their attackers. It’s estimated that two to six times that many women are raped, but do not report it. Every year 1.2 million women are forcibly raped by their current or former male partners, some more than once.
 
THE TARGETS. Women are 10 times more likely than men to be victimized by an intimate. Young women, women who are separated, divorced or single, low- income women and African-American women are disproportionately victims of assault and rape. Domestic violence rates are five times higher among families below poverty levels, and severe spouse abuse is twice as likely to be committed by unemployed men as by those working full time. Violent attacks on lesbians and gay men have become two to three times more common than they were prior to 1988.
