Content Warning: This graphic contains potentially triggering topics of sexual violence.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and it’s important to share statistics relating to sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape.

People of all ages, gender, and identities can and do experience abuse. The statistics below are based on reported issues, and not all victims may be comfortable coming forward.

Abuse or harassment is never the victim’s fault. If you need help or would like to talk about sexual assault, contact the 24-hour Sexual Assault Hotline, which is completely confidential, at 1-800-656-4673.
