  • Studies found that 1 in 5 women, and 1 in 13 men report experiencing sexual abuse before their 18th birthday. Because of the shame, stigma, and fear associated with their experience, at least sixty percent of child sexual abuse victims never disclose their abuse.

  • Children who do not live with both parents as well as children living in homes marked by parental discord, divorce, or domestic violence, have a higher risk of being sexually abused.

  • According to a 2003 National Institute of Justice report, 3 out of 4 adolescents who have been sexually assaulted were victimized by someone they knew well.

  • Victims of child sexual abuse and exploitation are at increased risk of experiencing long-term consequences to their physical and mental health, wellbeing, and economic independence.
