For every 1000 rapes: 230 are reported to the police, 46 reports lead to arrest, 9 cases get referred to prosecutors, 5 cases lead to felony convictions, and 4.6 rapists will be incarcerated (RAINN). Domestic violence affects all of us and it’s time we change the conversation around gender-based violence and speak out as one. Stand with us in amplifying the voices of survivors and activists.
