The Women's Center

In support of Pride Month 2021, the Women’s Center would like to raise awareness for the LGBTQ+ community. As a community, the LGBTQ+ population faces much higher rates of intimate partner and sexual violence.

-According to the CDC, 44% of lesbian women and 61% of bisexuals women have reported experiencing rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner compared to 35% of heterosexual women.
-26% of gay men, 37% of bisexual men and 29% heterosexual men reported experiencing rape, physical violence and/or talking by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime.
-According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 47% of transgender people have reported experiencing sexual assault as some point in their life time.
-The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey found that more than half (54%) of transgender and non-binary respondents experienced intimate partner violence in their lifetimes.

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. There is NO “typical victim.” Victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault come from all walks of life, varying age groups, all backgrounds, all communities, all education levels, all economic levels, all cultures, all ethnicities, all religions, all abilities, and all lifestyles (ncadv.org). The Women’s Center believes that every individual is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect, and that all people should be treated equally under the law and by society in general. No individual should be discriminated against or limited by society based on age, gender, sexual orientation or disability.

If you or someone you know needs support, contact the Women’s Center at (906) 225-1346 or our 24-hour hotline at (906) 226-6611.
