Out of every 100 rapes: 46 get reported to police, 12 lead to an arrest, 9 get prosecuted, 5 lead to a felony conviction, 3 rapists will spend even a single day in prison. The other 97 will walk free. Courtesy of RAINN. Assault Awareness, New Students, The Police, Awareness Months, Domestic Violence, Rape Culture, Sexual Assault, Walks Free, Statistics
I think it's important to clarify: according to RAINN's statistics, SOMEONE in the U.S. is raped every two minutes--and that someone is not necessarily a woman. Though rooted in patriarchy and misogyny, rape culture (and rapists) target people of all genders.
Rapists are the cause of rape. What a woman wears, says, drinks or does is not a factor. The common factor in all cases of rape is the presence of a rapist.
