Extent, Nature, and Consequences of Rape Victimization: Findings From the National Violence Against Women Survey
Despite a steep increase in rape research and public education in the past 30 years, rape continues to be largely underreported. Only one in five women who were raped as adults reported their rape to the police. Fear of their rapist, embarrassment, and not considering their rape a crime or police matter were the primary reasons women chose not to report their victimization to the police. These findings underscore the need for law enforcement agencies and victim service providers to expand their services to rape victims and do more to convince them that reporting their rape to the police is worthwhile and appropriate.
