    More than six and a half million people are stalked every year in the United States. One in six women and one in nineteen men report having been stalked at some point in their lives. The majority of stalkers are known to the victims and are often current or former romantic partners. Half of female stalking victims were under the age of twenty-five when the stalking began. The impact upon stalking victims is severe. Many fear it will never end. They miss significant amounts of school or work. They are always afraid of what may happen next. Some feel forced to move to escape the stalking. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, and social isolation become common. Victims of stalking feel helpless, alone, and completely vulnerable. But there are steps that can be taken to involve law enforcement, insist upon the protections of the law, and rebuild a sense of empowerment, independence, and ownership of one's own life. This resource will help you secure the help you need, regain control, and reengage with the world around you.
    Grades 7-12.
