1 in 6 Women Raped In Oregon

(Update): NOW reports economy having dire affect on domestic violence: http://www.now.org/issues/violence/090309cadv.html

This is a truly staggering statistic. In the last five years, 1 in 6 women have been raped, 50% of which are below the age of 17. More disturbing: sexual assault crimes make up 1/3 of all reported crimes statewide.

What is the cost to society? $50 Million dollars per year. Law enforcement spends $35 million dollars of the total $50 million on health/treatment related costs alone.
