How To Report Rape

    Rape is defined as the invasion of any part of the body of the victim or of the perpetrator with a sexual organ, or of the anal or genital opening of the victim with any object or any other part of the body by force, coercion, taking advantage of a coercive environment, or against a person incapable of giving genuine consent (International Criminal Court). Date rape is a rape that is committed by the person with whom the victim is on a date. 
Go to police and report about what happened. You have to be having all the evidence with you ; don’t  wash your body, change clothes and don’t urinate. If you do these you will be able to preserve all the evidence of rape.

Don’t fear stigma or blame yourself for the rape.
