Men are not exempt; one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives, and more than 20% of men will report sexual violence some time in their lives (National Sexual Violence Resource Center).

Often sexual abuse and violence toward women go unreported. An accurate and often used figure is that approximately 1/3 of women have experience sexual and/or physical violence and approximately 1/6 of men have experience sexual and/or physical violence.
