Sexual Harassment & Assault Statistics

According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network:

  • Every two and a half minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.
  • One in six American women are victims of sexual assault, and one in 33 men.
  • In 2004 - 05, there were an average annual 200,780 victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assault.
    • Of the average annual 200,780 victims in 2004-2005, about 64,080 were victims of completed rape, 51,500 were victims of attempted rape, and 85,210 were victims of sexual assault.
  • About 44% of rape victims are under age 18, and 80% are under age 30.

 

According to the American Association of University Women:

"Nearly two-thirds of students experience some form of sexual harassment during their college education. Sexual harassment is more common on large campuses than smaller ones and more prevalent at four-year colleges than two-year colleges. Sexual harassment is more common at private than public colleges (although public college students are more likely to say it is happening on their campus). Both male and female students can be targets of sexual harassment, although they tend to experience different types of harassment. LGBT students are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience sexual harassment. Although both male and female students harass, male students are more likely to be named as harassers and to admit to harassing others. Harassers justify their behavior by noting that they thought it was funny or the other person liked it."

In Case of Sexual Assault

What to do if you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted (or suspected) in the past 72 hours

Sexual Assault is a very traumatic experience and it is a crime. Even though you may not be sure whether you are going to prosecute at this time, collecting evidence is critical and is time sensitive. If you are not sure whether you were sexually assaulted or not, we still encourage you to come to a hospital's emergency room for examination. The following points are critical:

  • Do not eat or drink

  • Do not change your clothes

  • If you did change your clothes, do not wash them. Place them in a brown paper bag, and bring items with you to the ER.

  • Do not shower or bathe.

  • Do not use toilet tissue when urinating; use the underwear that you have on.

  • Try not to urinate in the event that you were given a drug prior to the assault, or bring the urine with you in a clean container.

How to Report

  • Report the sexual assault to the police agency in the county where the assault has occurred.
  • Report the sexual assault in the county where you live.
  • Call 911 and report the sexual assault.
  • Go to an Emergency Department at any hospital.
  • Emergency Contacts:
  • Ann Arbor Police/Ypsilanti Police: 911 (from a non-campus phone)
  • Domestic Violence Project/Safe House: 734-995-5444
  • St. Joseph Mercy Hospital: 734-712-3000
  • U-M Department of Public Safety: 911 (from a U-M campus phone)
  • U-M Hospital Emergency Room: 734-936-6666
  • U-M Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC): 734-936-3333

What to Report

  • Your legal name
  • The name of the person who has sexually assaulted you
  • A specific address where the assault took placeDate and time the assault took place

 

What to do if your assault took place greater than 72 hours ago

  • For health care concerns, follow up with your primary care doctor or a local clinic for STD testing, medical treatment or other needs.

  • For legal support, report to law enforcement as indicated above.

  • For counseling, contact Safe House, U-M Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Center, or your local mental health provider.

  • Patients who are 18 years and younger, who have been assaulted, greater than 72 hours should result in a phone call to the University of Michigan’s Child Protection Team (CPT 734-763-0215) or the Social Worker on-call (734-936-4000). If you are uncertain of the time frame you would follow this same procedure.
