    48 rapes every hour, US study finds

    DR Congo: 48 rapes every hour, US study finds

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-13367277

    A study by US scientists has concluded that an average of 48 women and girls are raped every hour in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    The study, in the American Journal of Public Health, found that 400,000 females aged 15-49 were raped over a 12-month period in 2006 and 2007.

    That rate is significantly higher than the previous estimate of 16,000 rapes reported in one year by the UN.

    The DRC says the figures reflect women being better able to report rape.

    Re: 48 rapes every hour, US study finds

    Considering only 1.8 million females live in the Congo (total pop of 3.6M), and estimating that roughly 1 million of them are between the ages of 15-48, this is an extremely concerning statistic. This would imply that just under half of the women in the Congo get raped every year. (400,000 of the 1,000,000)

    Hopefully my math is wrong.

    That math would be correct ... and is not surprising at all given all the turmoil over there.

    Also, with that Math ... remember, that does not take into account that most of them are probably raped numerous times. I would not be shocked if the total number of rapes is actually much higher.

    Throw in under reporting and the number gets even scarier...

    Either issue the women more of these.....



    The Rape-aXe is a latex sheath embedded with shafts of sharp, inward-facing barbs that would be worn by a woman in her vagina like a female condom. If an attacker were to attempt vaginal rape, his penis would enter the latex sheath and be snagged by the barbs, causing the attacker excruciating pain during withdrawal and giving the victim time to escape. The condom would remain attached to the attacker's body when he withdrew and could only be removed surgically,[4] which would alert hospital staff and police. Like most condoms, Rape-aXe also usually prevents pregnancy and the transmission of HIV and sexually transmitted Infections.

    That's definitely the intent & looks like they succeeded.
