How Common is Posttraumatic Stress Disorder?

According to the National Center for PTSD, an estimated 7.8 percent of Americans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives, with women (10.4%) twice as likely as men (5%) to develop PTSD.  About 3.6 percent of U.S. adults aged 18 to 54 (5.2 million people) have PTSD during the course of a given year

Nearly one-third of all rape victims develop Rape-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (RR-PTSD) sometime during their lifetimes, and more than eleven percent still suffer from it (National Center for Victims of Crime & Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, 1992).

When Golda Meir was Prime Minister of Israel she was asked to place a curfew on
women to end a series of rapes. However, she refused, saying.
"But it is the men who are attacking the women.
If there is to be a curfew, let the men stay at home."
