One in eight Swedish women will be raped in their lifetimes and that is a low estimate https://t.co/3uAyteEdNf

Shocking new statistics have been released by the Swedish bureau for crime statistics (BRÅ). It shows a detrimental increase in rapes in the last few years in Sweden.
The figures show that in 2017 there were 7,230 rapes in Sweden. A 10 percent increase from 2016 which saw 6,720 rapes. Not taking into account any further increases in rapes in the future, this would mean that 12.2% (or 1 in 8) of women in Sweden will be raped during their lifetimes.
Rapes in Sweden.
2017: 7 230
What happened? 🤔

These are shocking numbers and should be enough to make anyone question what on earth is going on in Sweden. This is simply not sustainable.
If you want to do the math for yourself: There are 5 million women living in Sweden. Taking into account an average lifespan of 85 years, with 7 230 rapes per year, this will mean that there will be 614,550 women raped during a woman’s lifetime, meaning that 1 in 8 of all women in Sweden will, sadly, be raped.
However, if you look even further back, the statistics can get even worse. From 2007 – 2017 there was a 34% increase in rapes. That means if this trend continues, in 20 years’ time there will be 12,982 rapes every year happening in Sweden.
That means 22% (or a bit over 1 in 5) women will be raped during their lifetime if that trend continues. These are truly horrible and shocking statistics.
Sweden prides itself on being a “feminist” country championing “equality”. But the sad reality is that Sweden perhaps has one of the worst rape rates in the world.
