Day 25: Rape

Rape is something that we all know about. It's one of those things that, unfortunately, has become so common to us that we don't view it as an injustice like we do human trafficking. Human trafficking, even though it is all around us, is not so familiar to us as rape is. We have tv shows, crime shows, flashing it before our eyes all the time, we hear about it on the news, we see it in movies, etc. But just because it's familiar doesn't mean it's any less of an injustice; it doesn't mean that it deserves less of our efforts because people are already aware. Rape, like anything, can become like white noise; but that would be the worst injustice of all.

The picture represents what rapists do to their victims; they steal their victim's innocence, their feeling of safety and security, their trust, sometimes their health, and more.

1 in 6 women have been raped or sexually assaulted.

Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in America.

On average, a woman is raped every 17 seconds in South Africa.
