Sexual trauma is a global public health issue
from The Hill
A recent study published in one of the premiere journals from the American Medical Association indicates that 6.5 percent of women in the United States experience their first sexual intercourse through physical force or coercion. Using a population-based sample of over 13,000 American women between the ages of 18 and 44, and appropriate statistical weighting, researchers say this means that more than 3.3 million reproductive-age women nationwide experienced forced intercourse as their sexual initiation. That number is jaw-dropping.
