One in five women will be victims of sexual violence at some point in their lives.
One in four girls will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old.
Join the Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire for our final virtual Empowerment Self Defense seminar of the year! It is estimated that between 80-90% of assaults against women are perpetrated by people they know and trust. Empowerment Self-Defense (ESD) emphasizes awareness and assertiveness skills in addition to verbal and physical strategies that address these more common experiences in addition to addressing those assaults that are perpetrated by strangers.
While we at RCC recognize that the only way to prevent rape is for people to choose not to become perpetrators of sexual violence,
our organization normally offers quarterly seminars in an effort to empower women and build their confidence, thus reducing their vulnerability to assault and other threatening situations.
