It has long been thought that the number of court convictions for rape and sexual assaults is just a fraction of the offences that actually take place. But the scale of the problem set out in figures published this week by the Government was still considered shocking. We were told there are as 517,000 claims of sexual assault every year; 54,000 of those are recorded by the police as crimese and just over 5,500 are convicted. Natasha Walter, Guardian columnist and Uanu Seshmi, director of the From Boyhood to Manhood Foundation, join the debate.
