I am always puzzled that in this day and age when sex can be easily procured for free why would a man resort to raping a woman? Obviously it’s not about the sex but power and control. Men who rape women generally have an inferiority complex and since they cannot run out and beat up a man, they exert that negative show of strength of a woman to make themselves feel better.
The alarming statistics is that 20 per cent of American or North American women are raped. This is unacceptable and more needs to be done to help protect women from these characters. The other disturbing fact though, is that most of these criminal activities involving women are by an intimate partner or someone they know. That is scary. According to recent survey:
Experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) described the results of the first year of the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey as “astounding”.
Among the key figures included in the survey’s findings were:
- more than one million women reported being raped in the 12 months prior to the survey
- more than six million women and men were a victim of stalking
- more than 12 million women and men reported rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner over the course of a year.
