THE CRY OF RAPE Muffled by Myth
Amy Bowman

You're on your way home from the grocery store. The man in the elevator gets off on the same floor in your apartment building. You realize he is following you. Your heart racing, you hurry to get inside your door. You're a second too late. He's behind you, forcing his way inů Incidences like this are numerous across the country. According to the 1974 Uniform Crime Reports released by the FBI, 58,000 females were the victims of rape, a nine percent increase over 1973, and a doubling since 1967. The 58,000 cases reported in 1974 means that on the average of every nine minutes a woman or girl in America was raped! Even these astounding figures do not tell the whole story since experts estimate that only about one fifth of the rapes that occur are reported. Any female may be a victim of rape. Lack of sexual attraction is no protection. Very young children, women in advanced pregnancy; and elderly women in their 70's and 80's have been victims of sexual attack. Rape can and does take place almost anywhere, anytime, any day of the week.
