Statistics

• Around 1 in 10 women (9.7%) said they had experienced some form of sexual victimisation (including rape) since age 16.
• Around 1 in 20 women (4.9%) said they had been raped on at least one occasion since age 16.
• The BCS estimates that approximately three-quarters of a million women (754,000) have been raped on at least one occasion since age 16. This includes approximately 61,000 victimised in the last year.
• There are several methodological reasons why these figures are likely to be under-estimates of the true levels of sexual victimisation in England and Wales.
-The 1998 and 2000 British Crime Survey (BCS)


• 1 in 4 women suffer rape or attempted rape.
• The most common rapists are current and ex-husbands or partners
• 1 in 7 married women said they had been forced to have sex compared to 1 in 3 divorced or separated women
• 91% of women told no one
• 97% of callers knew their assailant
• Less than 7% had reported the assault to the police
