Women ages 18-24 are at the highest risk for sexual assault. The staggering statistics for sexual assault and sexual violence continue to underscore the need for awareness and prevention work.Victims can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status.Although both men and women can be abused, most victims are women.To do that, we need people from all backgrounds and communities to lift their voices and say “No More” to sexual assault!The theme of 2017’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign is “Engaging New Voices.” We need everyone’s support in the movement to end sexual assault and promote healthy, respectful relationships!Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking.Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.Corlin, past president of the American Medical Association said: "The United States leads the world—in the rate at which its children die from firearms." He concluded: "Gun violence is a threat to the public health of our country." Furthermore, violence often has lifelong consequences for physical and mental health and social functioning and can slow economic and social development.In 2013, assault by firearm was the leading cause of death due to interpersonal violence, with 180,000 such deaths estimated to have occurred.Children in homes where there is domestic violence are more likely to be abused and/or neglected.Most children in these homes know about the violence.
