In another language
Studies have shown that one in two young women will experience some kind of unwanted sexual contact before they reach the age of eighteen. This can range from flashing to rape and all of these experiences can have a lasting effect on the woman.
But it’s not just young women who have experiences of rape or sexual assault. Babies, children, young women and women into their seventies, eighties and nineties experience rape.
Our figures at Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis show that only about 24.13% of women will ever make a report to the police.
Since 1976 the Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis Centre has been providing free and confidential support to women and girls who have been raped, sexually assaulted or sexually abused at any time in their lives.
Attitudes about rape and sexual assault that blame women and excuse the rapist can serve to silence women. Many women choose not to report the rape to the police for a wide range of reasons and that must remain the woman’s choice.
