April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month...

The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). 
The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate our students 
and communities on how to prevent sexual violence.
In the United States, 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men report that they have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.
         Over the course of an average 5-year college career, it is estimated that between 20% and 25% of college women will become victims of completed or attempted rape (Fisher, Cullen, & Turner, 2000).
         Males can also be victims of sexual violence and may be even less likely to report (Hart & Rennison, 2003).
         Among college women, 9 in 10 victims of rape and sexual assault knew their offender (Fisher, Cullen, & Turner, 2000).
         Almost 12.8% of completed rapes, 35% of attempted rapes, and 22.9% of threatened rapes
happened during a date (Fisher, Cullen, & Turner, 2000).
         Rape is far more extensive than reported in official statistics, and the large majority of rapists are never apprehended (Carr & VanDeusenk, 2004).

 Student Health Services and Student Senate will be hosting an event about sexual violence and healthy relationships. There will be community agencies  there to share resources about the prevalence of sexual violence in our community. We will also have The Clothesline Project, speakers, chalk drawing, and a demonstration by a Cabrillo self-defense class.
