Silent Statistics

An article by Claire N. Kaplan of the UVA Women's Center reacts to recent increases in crime in the Charlottesville area by observing that no rapes were reported to University police in 1995. She contrasts this statistic with the numbers of students who have sought help for sexual violence at the Women's Center, and concludes that victims of sexual crimes in the area have not reported these to the police, creating the illusion that sexual violence does not exist in the UVA community. She maintains that the fear of reporting sexual violence is disempowering, and encourages survivors to report incidents to the police through the Sexual Assault Research Agency.
