If you are a Victim of a Sexual Assault Attack
- React Early - fight for your life, strike eyes, throat, and groin. Pull your attacker's hair.
- Yell "Fire" or scream to draw attention to yourself.
- Run Away to a place where there are other people.
- Call the Police.
- Preserve Evidence - do not wash your clothes, shower, douche, or clean the area where the crime was committed.
- Nine out of ten women who are sexually assaulted know their attacker.
- Statistically, you're better off fighting back. You're less likely to be seriously injured and it's more likely the rape will not be completed if you fight strongly.
- 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.
