This is hard to believe.

In the aftermath of the trial of four men convicted in last year’s brutal gang-rape and murder on a Delhi bus, The Economist Daily Chart weighs in on the shocking prevalence of rape in six neighboring countries.

“More than one in ten men surveyed in six Asian countries said they had raped a woman who was not their partner—and that figure rose to nearly one in four when wives and girlfriends were included among victims.

Shockingly, more than one in seven rapists committed their first rape when they were younger than 15.”
