    Post Vermont= 3,000 sexual assaults in 2005

    Supporters and survivors of sexual abuse will plant more than 3,000 red flags on Vermont's statehouse lawn Tuesday. Each flag symbolizes someone who survived an assault in 2005.

    The goal-- end the epidemic of sexual violence.

    Monday night, the Burlington parole office and the Women's Rape Crisis Center held a community forum on sexual assault.






    The problem-- no one went. It's a subject it seems no one wants to talk about-- but one experts say we can't ignore.

    3,000!!! What the...! In Maine we only had 313 cases of sexual assault (for 2004: 286 successful, and 27 attempts not successful.), and we are bigger in terms of population.

    Hi Q64ceo,
    Thank-you for the post.
    Imagine the amount that is unreported.
    Also thanks for posting the stats for Maine.
