April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Women and even men have been victim to this senseless crime. One of the biggest issues facing the elimination of it is that most of these crimes go unreported. The crime is not limited to spouses, but also is found with children, in the workplace, or between relatives. Women, children, and even men are sometimes either ashamed or embarrassed to report sexual abuse. Some fear retribution if they do.
