Rationale and Scope
Young girls who barely experienced life have to endure traumatizing experiences. Imagine being so small and vulnerable with no protection and having to experience one of the worst situations that can ever encounter you.
Post rape or sexual assault is a whole different nightmare than experiencing the violation being done to you. Fear, guilt, shame, trust issues are just a few things that consume the victim after the incident. Society deforms them after their tragic attack. This only makes the young girl fall into an even bigger pit of self-loathing.
Rape is the worst assault young girls can face because it is a life time torment of long-lasting mental and physical problems. I am choosing this top icto bring out how rape

There are approximately 321,500 victims of rape or sexual assault each year in the United States who are 12 years or older.

Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) is an anti-sexual violence organisation which claims that sexual violence is at a higher risk for younger people. As you can see in the image:
• 54% of the girls who are sexually assault and raped fall in the age group of 18-34 years.
• In comparison to young girls in the age group of 18-34 years, the elderly women who are 65 years and above have 92% less chances to be a victim of rape or sexual assault.
Research says that young girls are usually the targets for a sexual assault and rape because of their vulnerability, their active social lives and their sexual attractiveness to older people. It is proved that older men are the ones to conduct sexual assault on young women and young men also contribute towards it. Men perform such acts because they want to enforce a sense of sexual entitlement, create a punishment for the women or it becomes a source of entertainment for them.

Another major problem that leads to rape and sexual assault is child marriage.

The reason for marriage is basically to avoid the shame that has come with the incident and because the victim is no longer a virgin, this makes her not worthy anymore in the eyes of the society of being eligible for marriage. Just because the young girl was violated, this law allows her to be somewhat ‘saved’ from our horrid society by living with her rapist for the rest of her life and to be continuously raped. It also turns to be a loophole for the rapist to escape from any sort of judicial verdict.
One tormenting incident I came across while researching was the murder of Junko Furuta that took place in Japan. On November 25th, 1988 Junko was walking home after school and she got kidnapped by 4 young men. She was held captive and was raped for more than 400 times in total. She was compelled to communicate to her parents that she eloped with a friend. She was tortured gruesomely for 44 days and then died on January 4th, 1989. The assailants hid her corpse in a drum filled with cement in Koto, Tokyo. I was truly disturbed after I read about this grisly experience Junko Furuta had to
