Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Interact with CDC’s sexual violence prevention experts April 22-26 on Facebook!
Sexual violence is a serious public health problem affecting millions of women and
men. In the United States, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men have been raped in their
lifetime. Nearly 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced other forms of sexual
violence at some point in their lives.
CDC is committed to stopping sexual violence before it begins with prevention
strategies based on the best available evidence.
