It’s a sad truth that rape happens every single day. In England and Wales alone it is said that around 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped every single year. This equates to roughly 11 rapes per hour and that’s only including the statistics for adults (RapeCrisis,2015).
Rape is something that can happen to anyone, anywhere in the world. However, travellers and in particular solo female travellers are arguably a group highly susceptible to rape.
