College Crime Statistics: Students Reality Check

The typical image of a rapist is a crazed maniac who jumps out of the bushes, brandishes a knife or gun and forces a woman to have sex with him. Images like this are strong and lasting but they mask the essential fact that most rapes are committed by acquaintances, someone you know, husband, relative, friend, perhaps a boyfriend, date rape.

This false image lives on because few rapes by acquaintances are ever reported: in fact, as the college statistics demonstrated above, those involved often do not recognize that a rape has occurred. Most rapes occur in the victim’s home or dorm room, the offender’s home or dorm room, or a vehicle.

Many times a woman will not want to confront her assailant, for fear of getting a bad grade or losing respect within the campus/community, or losing a job.

Women sometimes look towards themselves, asking what they did wrong, therefore shifting the blame away from where it really should be.

Keep This Safety In Mind For Personal Self Defense:

The best way to protect yourself from college crime is to be aware of your surroundings and the people that you’re with. Don’t ignore feelings of uneasiness you may feel around a certain man, and don’t worry about being rude or unfriendly.

If someone is making you uncomfortable, don’t let them intimidate you, and don’t be afraid to let them know what your limits are is the essence of women’s self defense.

Keep in mind that whether you know the man, if it is a friend, if they assault you, it is rape and it can be reported.

The legal definition of rape is a victim having sexual intercourse against her will and without her consent. (2) Sexual assault is defined as a sexual encounter other than intercourse (such as oral and anal sex) against the victim’s will and without his or her consent. In many states only a woman can be legally raped by a man, but the FBI estimates that 10 percent of all sexual assault victims are men. The victim does not have to be threatened with a dangerous weapon or be injured for an incident to be considered rape. Coercion or threat of force or violence are sufficient.

Rape Abuse and Incest National NetworkThe Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network “RAINN” is the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline and carries out programs to prevent sexual assault, help victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
