Sexual Assault Awareness

April 22nd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

State lawmakers have declared April Sexual Assault Awareness Month. At a news conference today in Tallahassee advocates said one in nine women will be sexually assaulted at sometime during their life. Representative Audrey Gibson says the number may be even higher and the public needs to be aware.

They need to know the statistics, Gibson said. They need to realize that it is probably even bigger than the numbers that were putting forth because many women dont come forward and we need to let women know that they do need to make sure that they tell somebody.

Many times women do no come forward because they blame themselves. Gibson says that is a fear that must be overcome.
