Stop sexual violence before it starts.

About 1 in 5 women have experienced rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. About 1 in 15 men have been made to penetrate someone else during their lifetime.

Stopping sexual violence before it happens is a CDC priority. It can be prevented.

CDC has developed a technical package to help states and communities use the best available evidence to prevent sexual violence.

Stop sexual violence:

  • Promote social norms that protect against violence
  • Teach skills to prevent sexual violence
  • Provide opportunities to empower and support girls and women
  • Support victims/survivors to lessen harms
  • Create protective environments

It is important to monitor and evaluate your efforts while the field of violence prevention continues to evolve.

Be a part of the solution.

Your prevention efforts may involve developing new partnerships or working across sectors. Including: Education, Government, Health Care Services, Social Services, Public Health, Businesses, Justice, Housing, Non-Governmental Organizations, Foundations

Together we can stop sexual violence. Act now! Use CDC’s technical package to begin or expand your prevention efforts.
