Have you guys written anything debunking the '1 in 3 women in the world have been raped' claim? I looked in the resources pages but I couldn't find anything about that one in particular, as I think it's different from the 1 in 4 claim? (I don't even know with any of this any more). If you have, that'd be really useful... so many people I talk with bring this one up and I know it's been debunked but I don't know enough about it to make a convincing case. — disastergirrl

Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to debunk this claim, as we can’t find any sources for it either.  The closest thing we can find is One Billion Rising’s claim that 1 in 3 women will be assaulted in some way, which is very, very different.

The next time it comes up, maybe ask for a source and send it to us?  It’d really help!
