Among women who were raped, nearly half were victimized before turning 18. More than a quarter of the male rapes occurred before the victims were 10, according to the report.

And the vast majority of assailants were known to the victims, with fewer than one in six rapes committed by strangers.

The report cited sexual assaults on college campuses as a particular problem, noting that 1 in 5 women has been sexually assaulted while in college. It also pointed to research suggesting that campus perpetrators are often repeat offenders....

It 
 
is
 
up
 
to
 
all 
 
of 
 
us
 
to
 
ensure
 
victims
 
of 
 
sexual 
 
violence
 
are
 
not 
 
left 
 
to
 
 face
 
these
 
trials
 
alone.
 
Too
 
often,
 
survivors
 
suffer 
 
in
 
silence,
 
 fearing
 
retribution,
 
lack 
 
of 
 
support,
 
or 
 
that 
 
the
 
criminal 
 
 justice
 
system
 
will 
 
 fail 
 
to
 
bring
 
the
 
 perpetrator 
 
to
 
 justice.
 
We
 
must 
 
do
 
more
 
to
 
raise
 
awareness
 
about 
 
the
 
realities
 
of 
 
sexual 
 
assault;
 
confront 
 
and 
 
change
 
insensitive
 
attitudes
 
wherever 
 
they 
 
 persist;
 
enhance
 
training
 
and 
 
education
 
in
 
the
 
criminal 
 
 justice
 
system;
 
and 
 
expand 
 
access
 
to
 
critical 
 
health,
 
legal,
 
and 
 
 protection
 
services
 
 for 
 
survivors.
