How to Support Women this Women’s History Month

This Women’s History Month, RAINN is honoring the millions of women whom we have been honored to serve over the last 28 years.

While people of every age and gender are victims of sexual violence, women are disproportionately at risk: one out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime, according to Justice Department data.

"RAINN is committed to supporting all victims by offering hope, resources, and empowerment through our various anonymous support services," says Traci Sharpe, RAINNs director of training and clinical services, who shared the resources below for any survivor seeking healing, education, and support.

If you or a loved one ever requires support for matters concerning sexual violence or abuse, please contact us 24/7 at the National Sexual Assault Hotline by calling 800.656.HOPE (4673) or through online chat.
