Rape is a horrible crime. Many countries are striving to regulate it. Although the United States is one the most educated countries in the world, the nation still witnesses approximately 200,000 rapes or sexual assaults a year. The problem is worse in the African countries. According to South African police, a woman is raped every 36 seconds. Many people think that rape is a sexual assault carried out by a stranger. This assumption is, in fact, incorrect. Crime statistics show that the majority of the rape victims were abused by someone they already knew. Unfortunately, some of our celebrities are rape survivors too. Read the stories of the 12 celebrities (male and female) who were sexually assaulted during their younger years.
