How rare are false rape accusations? This rare...

As The Washington Post put it, this is the saddest graph you will see today.

The graphic, (via Washington Post/Huffington Post), was put together by the Enliven Project using data from the US Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey and FBI reports. It drives home extremely well the fact that false rape accusations are exceedingly rare, despite what media reports might suggest. Almost as rare are cases when rapists actually go to jail.
