  • Some statistical information from Rape Crisis England
  • 20% of women and 4% of men have experienced sexual assault since the age of 16, equivalent to 3.4 million female and 631,000 male victims.
  • Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence
  • Only 15% report sexual violence to police. Conviction rates for rape are far lower than other crimes; only 5.7% of reported rape cases end in a conviction for the perpetrator.
  • Some statistical information from the Femicide Census
  • 149 women were killed by 147 men in the UK in 2018
  • 91 women (61%) were killed by their current or former partner
