I borrowed this video from my friends over at Opt4. It shows how men rarely have to even think about the possibility of being raped. Some of them even laughed when asked what they did to protect themselves from rape, or seemed baffled by the question. But the women all had numerous strategies and often elaborate plans for how to avoid rape. This shouldn’t be. Watch it all through to see the appalling stats about rape worldwide. One in six US women will be raped in their lives (about 17%). But 6 out of 10 women globally will experience sexual violence. That’s 60% folks. Unbelievable. And 97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail. Let that number really sink in.
I agree…I am tired of the silence. Are you?
