We’re using Sexual Violence Awareness Week 2021 to challenge myths about sexual violence and highlight some facts and figures about the prevalence and impact of sexual violence.
In England and Wales, prosecutions for rape dropped to an all-time low of just 2,102 in the year ending March 2020. Only 1439 resulted in a conviction.
The Crime Survey of England and Wales indicates that tens of thousands of people are raped every year – most of which are not reported to the police and therefore never see the inside of a courtroom.
Somethings wrong. Somethings not working. Something needs to change.
