Research shows that most rapes are not reported to anyone.
One factor relating to this is the misconception that most rapes are committed by strangers.
In reality, only 7% of the perpetrators were strangers to the victim.
Some victims might be unable to report to anyone. Others may be children that have been abused but do not understand that that people should not do things to them
15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12.
29% are age 12-17.
93% of juvenile sexual assault victims know their attacker.
34.2% of attackers were family members.
58.7% were acquaintances.
Jane, the first woman in Japan to speak publically about being raped has helped many people and lobbied the Government to make changes but as they have done very little to see the core problem JANE is building an Organisation that will reach out. Helping Victims will still be done but more importantly she will release a Social Education Program designed to end the Silence. It can be done and will be done.
