Perpetrators of sexual violence are less likely to go to jail than perpetrators of other crimes. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey from 2010-2014, only 344 out of 1,000 is reported to the police. Why does this happen? Those who do not report do so for reasons such as fear of retaliation, belief that law enforcement will not believe them, and/or a belief that what happened to them is not important enough to report.  

While it is important that these statistics change for the better, the decision to report belongs entirely to the survivor. However, should survivors choose to report, they can find answers to many frequently asked questions here.

These are just a few phrases abusers use to gaslight their victims. Learn the signs here:
