The Issue

All data from Violence Against Children Surveys, led by CDC, as part of the Together for Girls partnership.

Girls experience sexual violence at staggering rates.

Boys experience violence too, often with severe consequences.

To break the cycle of violence, we must focus on both boys and girls.

WHAT'S WRONG

WITH THIS PICTURE?

Although girls and boys both experience significant rates of sexual violence, few report sexual violence and even fewer seek services and receive services. And tragically, these survivors are often not receiving the critical care that they need.
