  4. Call the Police.

More Details


  1. Nine out of ten women who are sexually assaulted know the suspect.
  2. Statistically, you are better off fighting back. You are less likely to be seriously injured and it is more likely that the rape will not be completed if you fight strongly.
  3. One in four women attending college will be sexually assaulted typically during their first year at school when they are unsure of themselves in the new social environment.
