The financial costs of sexual assault
from The GW Hatchet
The White House estimates that sexual assault can cost a survivor between $87,000 and more than $240,000 on top of an emotional toll that is difficult to quantify, reports say. Most experts say rape will cost a survivor about $150,000, a total based on studies that also put a price on emotional distress and loss of productivity. A sexual assault can also come at a price for academic success, making it nearly impossible to fully measure the impact, experts say.
