Rape Statistics Worldwide (Massoud Malek, USA, 02/25/17 5:18 am)

After riding down an escalator, Trump announced his presidential bid. He said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists."

In 2010, an Amnesty International report highlighted that sexual violence happens in every single country, and yet the official figures show that some countries like Hong Kong and Mongolia have zero cases reported.

A total of 63 countries don't submit any statistics about rape, including South Africa, where a survey in 2010 showed that one in four men questioned admitted to rape; of those, almost half said they had raped more than one person. South Africa has the most incidences of child and baby rape in the world. If the rapist is sentenced, his prison time would be about 2 years.

According to a 2014 study published by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, approximately 52% of women in Denmark were said to have suffered physical and/or sexual abuse. And 47% of women surveyed in Finland were said to have suffered physical and/or sexual abuse.

According to the National Violence Against Women Survey, 1 in 6 US women and 1 in 33 US men has experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. More than a quarter of college-age women report having experienced a rape or rape attempt since age 14. Out of all, only 16% of the total cases are reported. Outdoor rape is not common in USA; rather most of the rape cases takes place inside homes.

According to a 2014 report, there are 460,000 sexual assaults in Canada every year. It is reported that in Canada with a population of 36 million, over one in three (about 6 million) women had experienced a sexual assault, and that only 6% (33 out of every 1,000) of sexual assaults were reported to the police. According to Justice Institute of British Columbia, one out of every 17 women is raped, 62% of rape victims were physically injured, 9% were beaten or disfigured.

Should a wall be built on our northern border to keep Canadian rapists from entering the US?

JE comments:  The worst face of rape (if we can say such a thing) is when it's a deliberate, systematic tactic of war or political control.  History has given many depressing examples of this.

See this The World radio segment (February 24th) on one woman's ordeal in Sudan:

The second link above tells us that in France, rape wasn't officially a crime until 1980.  How can that be?
