April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month


Sexual assault is a widespread problem and happens far too often across ages, genders and cultures. 

Over half of women have experienced sexual violence in her lifetime according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And 1 in 3 women globally have experienced sexual assault, the World Health Organization reports. While women and teen girls are most at risk – 9 out of every 10 rape victims are female – men and boys, and people of all genders, are sexually assaulted.

But we know this is not inevitable. Healthcare providers, employers and advocates can adopt effective strategies to prevent and address sexual assault.

For Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we’ve compiled all our best resources to help you do this imperative work of ending sexual assault.

Healthcare Providers


For Violence Prevention Advocates

If you or someone you know needs help, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline: 800-656-HOPE or go to https://hotline.rainn.org/online to chat online.

These and many more resources are available at our online store where providers and advocates can download safety cards, posters, and more for free, and order hard copies for the cost of shipping.

We hope you will use and share these materials. To stay updated on our work with healthcare communities, please join our email list.
