Sexual Violence is a social problem that we need to address everyday.
Until the age of 12, boys and girls are abused in a ratio of 1:6.
After the age of 12, girls and women are abused in a ratio of 1:3; boys and men are abused in a ration of 1:7.
In 87% of abuse cases the abuser is known to the survivor.
Approx. 65% of abuse cases took place when the victims were minors.
According to the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, in 2012, 40% of women have reported incidents of sexual harassment at the workplace.
The Jerusalem Rape Crisis Center aims to create a social change both by reducing cases of sexual violence as well as changing the discourse about the phenomenon and the survivors. Moreover, we believe in equipping adults who come in contact with teenagers and children with tools to discuss taboo issues, such as sexuality and sexual violence as well as provide them with tools to deal with cases of sexual violence among their students and/or children.
