    Your article looks like a valuable scholarly contribution to an important topic. I suspect that a good deal of the public’s lack of concern over the incidence of rape these days is due not only to police departments gaming the numbers on rape occurrences, but also to the prevalence of campus feminist groups exaggerating the incidence of rapes on college campuses. No one with any sense believes that 20% of all female college students are the victim of a rape or attempted rape during their four years at at school, but by making false claims like that, by “crying wolf” if you will, they have desensitized the public to claims like yours.
