Just the Facts . on Assaults

Assualts are real

Assualts are real

As Joe Friday would say…Just the Facts

THE FACTS:The statistical facts on the assault on women are alarming at best. The ones seen on the evening news, or on Nancy Gracem or 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 we can reduce these numbers.

 
 SEXUAL ASSAULT-  Think about this,  according to the data compiled by the FBI and the Justice Depatment
  • Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.
  • Every 6 minutes, someone in the U.S. is raped.

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 someone they know. Collega age 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.
Are you prepared with the knowledge, confidence and tools to protect yourself when the need arises?  Instead of feeling frightened, you can feel empowered if you have the right tools and the knowledge on how to protect yourself.
In today’s society being equipped mentally and physically is no longer an option.
