Every 34 minutes a rape is reported to the police in the United Kingdom. Thousands more victims do not come forward.Yet three-quarters of local authorities have no services for rape victims and only one in twenty rapes reported to the police leads to a conviction. This failure to bring rapists to justice amounts to a near licence to rape.Women are being failed by the criminal justice system, and left with nowhere to turn for support. We need your help to make a difference.
