According to the Centers for Disease Control's 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, nearly 1 in 5 women in the United States have been raped in her lifetime. Nearly 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men have experienced sexual violence victimization other than rape at some point in their lives. 

Survivors may experience emotional, physical, and psychological trauma that impact every aspect of their lives.
