In France, 94,000 women report being victims of rape or attempted rape each year, according to the French Ministry of Gender Equality. But in 2021, fewer than 1 percent of reported assaults will result in a conviction. In addition to emotional and psychological trauma, rape victims must also deal with strong administrative systems and stereotypes, which often influence procedures and sentencing. Reporting by Marie Schuster and James Mulholland of FRANCE 24.
