More and more Swedish women say they are victims of sexual crimes. New figures from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention show that 480,000 Swedish women were sexually assaulted in 2015. That is worse than any previous year, worse than ever.
In a new study, three percent of women say they were subjected to some form of sexual offenses in 2015. The corresponding figure last year was just under two percent.
