South African Rape Statistics

According to Rape.co.za, it’s estimated that women born in South Africa have more chance of being raped than learning how to read. The site also quotes a survey that was conducted amongst 1,500 Sowetan school children, in which it was discovered that a quarter of all boys said that “jackrolling” (their lingo for gang rape) was “fun”.

The devastating stats continue – a quarter of South African men who took part in a survery by the Medical Research Council (MRC) admitted to raping someone, it’s estimated that half a million rapes are commited each year in SA.

A study by Interpol (the international police agency) shows that South Africa has the highest rate of rape in the world.
