Domestic Violence Billboards
and Domestic Violence Movies

According to the AMA, sexual assault continues to represent the most rapidly growing violent crime in America, claiming a victim every 45 seconds. Because many of these attacks occurring daily go unreported and unrecognized, sexual assault can be considered a 'silent-violent epidemic' in the United States today. The National Victim Center reports that over 700,000 women are raped or sexually assaulted annually. Of these victims, 61% are age 17 or less, often a lot less.

Men are responsible for the majority of violence in this nation. According to the FBI's 2010 statistics on crime, men made up 90 percent of the 11,000 murder offenders whose gender was known. Men also were responsible for 77 percent of aggravated assaults, 84 percent of burglaries, 82 percent of arsons, 74 percent of offenses against the family and children, and 99 percent of rapes.

Every 2 minutes someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Each year there are about 240,000 victims of sexual assault. 44% of victims are under 18, 80% are under 30. 60% of sexual assaults are not reported to police. 97% of rapists will never spend a day in jail. About 2/3 of sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim. 38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance.

Sioux Falls Feminists has purchased the rights to show these movies to selected audiences and we will be doing that weekends during the month of October at the Sioux Falls Main Public Library Conference Room on Saturdays. It would well worth your time to attend some of them. They could make a significant difference in how you might help those suffering from this unnecessary misery and abuse.
