Aftermath survey results say
mostN.C. rapes not reported
By MIKE COYNE
A high percentage of rapes and sexual
assaults go unreported because victims
fear public ridicule and their treatment
in court, according to a report recently
released by Aftermath.
The report is the result of a survey of
230 North Carolina rape victims who
called Aftermath between July 25 and
' Of those callers, 202 were victims who
did not report the attack to police.
Of the 230 callers covered in the
report, 88 percent did not seek legal
assistance, and 75 percent did not seek
The reasons victims most often cited
for not seeking assistance were fear of
the treatment they would receive in
court (30 percent), and fear of the
ridicule they felt they would receive if
the attack were made public (25
percent). Another 14 percent said they
did not want to relive or retell the
experiences and thus did not seek help.
The report shows that 91 percent of
the victims of the unreported rapes and
sexual assaults were white, 87 percent
were female, 70 percent were single and
74 percent had received at least 13 years
The rape victims who called
Aftermath ranged in age from 4 to 81

years, but 87 percent of the attackers
were in their teens to their mid-20s.
Last year, a total of 807 rapes and
attempted rapes were reported,
according to police figures.
The Aftermath survey was conducted
to establish a more accurate count of
sexual assaults and attempted assaults,
and to determine the reasons why the
incidents are not reported.
The survey was financed by a grant
from Comprehensive Employment and
Training Act (CETA) funds to the N.C.
Council on the Status of Women.
Shirley Ann Walker, director of the
program, said Aftermath guarantees
confidentiality to callers by assigning
them numbers and taking no names.
More than two-thirds of the victims
were attacked at a place other than their
residence, according to the survey. The
report also shows that 66 percent of the
victims knew their attackers.
When asked what the punishment for
rape should be, 28 percent of the victims
favored life imprisonment, and 16
percent said they felt the death penalty
should be imposed.
The Aftermath survey will continue
until Nov. 25, and the telephones are
answered Monday through Friday from
7 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. The toll-free number is

Carter announces 4 percent unemployment goal
From I'niled Press Inlernutionul
WASHINGTON - President Carter
announced support Monday for a bill setting
a national goal of 4 percent unemployment
by 1983, but there were differing views on
whether the government is obligated to see
that the goal is met.
Carter, noting that the jobless rate now is 7
percent, called the measure an ambitious
objective and one that may prove very

"It's obvious from the statistics that the
conditions are discouraging for women to
use the gym," said Joy Kasson, an associate
professor in American studies and a signer of
the faculty grievance. "When the new gym is
built (completion date is I9S0), conditions
will be different. The grievance is asking for a
temporary solution between then and now,
so that something could be done to give
everyone access to the facilities."
Carl Blyth. chairperson of the physical
education department, said Monday he had
not received a copy of the grievances and
qould not comment until he had read them.
"Ive just now heard about it, and 1 want to
see what they are saying before 1 comment,"
The grievances state that women faculty,
students, team members and stuff have
access to only 1,463 lockers and baskets in
the gym, w hile men have use of 8,200 lockers
and baskets. These figures are based on
actual counts and information obtained
from locker room managers. Some may be
