Congress Cannot Fail Millions of Women

The idea that women-many of which are so young-could be sexually assaulted and fail to get the treatment and services they need to get on the road to recovery is not only heartbreaking - it is devastating.  Those most likely to be raped or sexually assaulted are young women between the ages of 16 and 24 - young women with their whole lives ahead of them, with dreams and aspirations.  Regardless of treatment, this one act of violence will alter their lives forever.  But absent proper treatment and counseling in a timely manner, it could destroy any possibility of a healthy life.  Without the funding, this Congress will have failed millions of women - women who cannot afford to wait.
