In Sexual Assault Awareness, Volunteer on January 8, 2012 at 5:00 am

Let’s think about this:

Of female rape or sexual assault victims in 2009, 21 percent were assaulted by a stranger. Thirty-nine percent of offenders were friends or acquaintances of their victims, and 41 percent were intimate partners.

(Federal Bureau of Investigation, “Crime in the United States 2009, Clearances,” (Washington, DC: GPO, 2010), http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/offenses/clearances/index.html  (accessed November 12, 2010).
