FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 7, 2000 Contact: Susan Lewis, National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) 1-877-739-3895 Ext 102 THE NSVRC PROCLAIMS: "VAWA REAUTHORIZATION IS GOOD FOR THE NATION" --------------------------------------------------------------------- Enola, PA

University Park, Pa. (Nov. 15, 2011) - The National Center for the Victims of Crime estimates  one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Recent events at Penn State have sparked national attention around this issue, which is typically shrouded in silence and often unreported. How can society recognize child sexual abuse? What can people do to prevent it?  And what resources are available to victims and their families?  
 

Note: This is a response to “How the CDC is Overstating Sexual Violence in the U.S.” by Christina Hoff Sommers published in the January 27, 2012, edition of The Washington Post.

“I wish it were true that sexual violence is being overstated”
