How common is rape and sexual assault? Am I the only one?

You are not the only one and you are not alone. According to the Rape Crisis Center, every 2 minutes, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. This number is, in all likelihood, much higher as only approximately 39% of sexual assaults are reported.
