The National Institute for Justice and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one out of every six American women has either been completely raped or attempted to be raped at one time in her life. They institute also finds that over half of these rapes will not be reported. Of those reported, only one out of four cases will lead to an arrest. If that’s not gloomy enough, only one out of four of those arrests will lead to an incarceration.
