American Medical Association: 1 in 16 Women Said Their First Time Having Sex Was Rape
One in 16 women said their first time having sex was rape. The Journal of the American Medical Association released a study that surveyed 13,310 women in the U.S. aged 18-44. 6.6% of those women said their first time having sex was "forced" on them. This data equates to approximately 3.3 million women nationwide. "Quite honestly, that's the tip of the iceberg," Harvard Medical School fellow Dr. Laura Hawks stated.
