SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN UTAH
According to the Utah Department of Health, one in three Utah women will experience some form of sexual violence during their lives. Uniform Crime Reports says the rape rate in Utah has been consistently higher than the U.S. rate.
In addition, the majority of rape cases in Utah (88.2%) are never reported according to the 2007 Rape in Utah Survey, indicating that sexual violence in Utah is underestimated. Reports show that one in eight women and one in 50 men will be raped in Utah. One in five women and one in 16 men will experience sexual assault in college, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.
OUR CALL TO ACTION
Utah needs a strong strategy to challenge and eliminate the causes of sexual violence; to work within our communities to raise awareness, reduce risk and prevent it.
"A primary prevention approach incorporates awareness-raising and asks communities to dig deeper and to ask the hard questions. Rather than trying to keep one potential victim safe at a time, what if we engage all of society as a whole to end sexual violence at its roots? What are the roots of sexual violence? How can we end it?
A primary prevention strategy asks us to look at our own attitudes and behaviors, how we interact with each other, and the norms of our communities, businesses, schools, and institutions in regards to violence." ~ Texas Association Against Sexual Assault
