About Rape statistics in brief
Statistics on rape and other sexual assaults are commonly available in industrialized countries. Inconsistent definitions of rape, different rates of reporting, recording, prosecution and conviction for rape create controversial statistical disparities. In some jurisdictions, male-female rape is the only form of rape counted in the statistics. Rape in Afghanistan is a crime which can be legally prosecuted, but in practice it is very rarely reported, because of the immense risks that women face if they report it. The lack of a clear definition of rape in Algerian law makes it difficult for women to report the act and seek legal remedies. There have been continuous allegations that French troops had engaged in torture and rape against Algerians during the Algerian War. In 2001, women accused of being prostitutes have been targeted in mob attacks. In 2012, Afghanistan recorded 240 cases of honour killings and 160 cases of rape. In 2013, in eastern Ghazni, a man attacked a woman and attempted to rape her, and as a result the relatives of the woman killed both the woman and the man in an honour killing. In Australia, non-consensual sexual penetration is termed ‘Rape’ in Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, Tasmania and Tasmania. It is not acceptable for a woman to be alone with a man, and if this happens the response can be very violent: an Afghan medical doctor and his female patient were attacked by an angry mob who threw stones at them after the two were discovered in his private examining room without chaperon.
Recently, it has been also alleged to be also alleged that children in the country have been also raped without a chaperone. The United Kingdom at 85,000 rapes a year. The list does not include the estimated rape statistics of the countries, per year, such as South Africa having 500,000 raped per year. It does not, and of course cannot, include cases of raped which go unreported or unrecorded. The table does not specify whether recorded means reported, brought to trial, or convicted. Each entry is based on that country’s definition of raped, which varies widely throughout the world. Research on male-male and female-male is beginning to be done. However, almost no research has been done on female- female rape, though women can be charged with rape in a few jurisdictions. In a survey by United Nations, for 100 women that suffered sexual violence in their lifetimes, 14% had experienced attempted rape and 2.3% had experience rape. The number for both honour killing and rapes is estimated to be much higher. In Afghanistan, crimes such as adultery, rape and trafficking are often conflated with each other, and it is generally notacceptable for a women and a man to be in a relationship alone together. In 2011, Afghanistan made international news in regard to a woman who was raped by a man and gave birth to a child in jail, and was then subsequently pardoned by president Hamid Karzai, and in the end married the man who raped her.
