This crime is not acceptable at all. Heinous crimes like this should be punished with capital punishment. We cannot be sitting idle and watching this happen all around. Time to wake up to the cries of women and help each other.

“Rape is the only crime in which the victim becomes the accused.”

Freda Adler quotes (US author, educator and theorist, b.1955)

“Pornography is the instruction. Rape is the practice, battered women are the practice, and battered children are the practice.”

Gloria Steinem quotes (American Writer and Activist. b.1935)

Here are some key statistics about shocking sexual violence for example the U.K., a modern country in Europe:

Approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year; that's roughly 11 rapes (of adults alone) every hour. These figures include assaults by penetration and attempts.
Nearly half a million adults are sexually assaulted in England and Wales each year
1 in 5 women aged 16 - 59 has experienced some form of sexual violence since the age of 16
Only around 15% of those who experience sexual violence choose to report to the police
Approximately 90% of those who are raped know the perpetrator prior to the offence

These figures come from An Overview of Sexual Offending in England and Wales, the first ever joint official statistics bulletin on sexual violence released by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Home Office in January 2013.

31% of young women aged 18-24 report having experienced sexual abuse in childhood (NSPCC, 2011)
In 2012-13, 22,654 sexual offences against under-18s were reported to police in England and Wales with four out of five cases involving girls (NSPCC, 2014)
Most women in the UK do not have access to a Rape Crisis Centre (Map of Gaps, 2007)
A third of people believe women who flirt are partially responsible for being raped (Amnesty, 2005)
Conviction rates for rape are far lower than other crimes, with only 5.7% of reported rape cases ending in a conviction for the perpetrator. (Kelly, Lovett and Regan, A gap or a chasm? Attrition in reported rape cases, 2005)

Rape Crisis England & Wales headline statistics 2015-16:

Rape Crisis member organisations across England and Wales responded to 171,000 helpline calls in the 12 months to 31st March 2016, an average over 3,000 a week
58,000 individuals received an on-going Rape Crisis service(s), an increase of 16% since 2014-15
Rape Crisis members provided in excess of 350,000 sessions of specialist support, including advocacy, emotional support and counselling, an increase of 17% since 2014-15
95 per cent of all service users were female
Three-quarters of all adult service users contacted Rape Crisis about sexual violence that occurred at least 12 months earlier; 42% were adult survivors of child sexual abuse
The largest group that contact Rape Crisis Centres continues to be those who prefer to self-refer (44%), a pattern which has remained consistent over the past five years and continues to demonstrate the necessity for funded independent services
Where age is known, 1,700 were aged 15 or under, an increase of 13% on last year; those aged under 25 represented 33% of service users, an increase of 8%
Where ethnicity is known, 27% of Rape Crisis services users were Black or Minority Ethnic, an increase from 23% in 2014-15
23% of all service users identified as Disabled
The increase in demand for Rape Crisis specialist services has led to an 11% increase in waiting lists of new service users. At the end of March 2016 there were over 4,000 service users waiting for a service
There was a 53% increase in service users accessing text and email support services on the previous year

There is another heinous crime:

Rape pornography is extremely inhumane and pure misogyny. Here were often teens and even children brutally tortured and raped. This must strictly be punished with long prison sentences and these pages must be permanently removed from the internet. The existence of such rape porn I found out as a perverted stalker sent me this for five years such kind of rape porn mails and the sender could not be found unambiguously. This is absolutely scandalous that there are such disgusting brutal porn, at which sadists may still enjoy! This needs to stop immediately!

I agree that Harsh punishment like castration of men should be given for rapists. I feel that family particularly Mother should teach young boys (even husbands)to respect Girls and their bodies. They should be told to control their sexual urges by diverting their mind to other activities.
