Did you know that every day, millions of girls worldwide are abused? The World Health Organization estimates that more than 130 million girls and women have been raped or forced into sexual intercourse. This is a global issue, but one that has local consequences as well. In the United States alone, 1 in 4 girls will be sexually assaulted before they turn 18. What does this mean for our children’s future? The opening paragraph should talk about the problem of rape and abuse against women happening globally with an emphasis on its effects in America. The second paragraph should talk about the statistics of rape in America and how it is a problem that needs to be addressed. It could also mention some other ways you can take action, such as getting involved with groups that help women who are victims of violence or donating time or money to organizations like The Family Place so they can give support for families when they need it the most. For more information on this issue check out: World Health Organization Report, One Billion Rising Campaign, Rape Abuse Incest National Network (RAINN).
