Not All Are Reported

1 in 5 girls and 1 in 8 boys are molested before the age of 18. This statistic only comes from the number of reported incidents, not the actual number of events. I’d expect this number to be much higher if all cases were in fact, reported.

Predators are hidden in plain sight – they can be an older sibling, family member, relative, colleague or friend. In fact, 90% of the time a predator is someone with a relationship to the victim and the family.

  2. Yes, it is. When I was leading the support groups it was 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys so its a tiny bit better. We continue to bring awareness and hopefully slow it down even more.
