Impact of Rape and Sexual Assault

Women who are raped are more likely to suffer from diseases such as asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, chronic pain, headaches and difficulty sleeping. These victims are five times more likely to have depressive episodes, develop eating disorders, abuse drugs and alcohol, and engage in high-risk HIV behavior. (Photo: Getty Images)
