We had a successful first Realtor special edition of the Fight Like a Girl class last month. Thank you all who attended!

We will be offering a seminar on January 9, 2010. It is yet to be determined which class we will be offering. We will be happy to accommodate any requests.

Please call or email for questions and to register.


Some numbers presented by One in Four website: Sexual Assault Statistics

-57% of rapes happen on dates.
-75% of the men and 55% of the women involved in acquaintance rapes were drinking or taking drugs just before the attack.
-About 70% of sexual assault survivors reported that they took some form of self-protective action during the crime. The most common technique was to resist by struggling or chase and try to hold the attacker. Of those survivors who took protective action, over half believed it helped the situation, about 1/5 believed that it made the situation worse or simultaneously worse and better.
-84% of rape survivors tried unsuccessfully to reason with the man who raped her.
-55% of gang rapes on college campuses are committed by fraternities, 40% by sports teams, and 5% by others.
-Approximately 40% of sexual assaults take place in the survivor's home. About 20% occur in the home of a friend, neighbor, or relative. 10% occur outside, away from home. About 8% take place in parking garages.
-More than half of all rape and sexual assault incidents occurred within one mile of the survivor's home or in her home.
