Sexual assault happens to men as well as women. In fact, by most estimates, 5% to 10% of sexual assaults committed in the United States involve male victims. Some experts say that as many as 1 in 10 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetimes. (The Counseling & Mental Health Center at The University of Texas at Austin. Author: Jeff Kulley, Ph.D.)

The YWCA is dedicated to helping survivors of sexual assault regardless of gender.
