"Unmarried women have the right to administer property without the intervention or consent of a man. Married women, too, have this right.

"In Benin, more than 75 percent of women are victims of violence, and 44 percent are sexually abused" (para 1). This lifetime rape rate can be converted to a yearly estimated rape rate of 480.60 per 100,000 total population. This conversion was made using a formula commonly used in epidemiology to convert a cumulative rate into a rate for a specific time (in our case 1 year). It is important to note that this estimate excludes any male rape victims (TPJ - CODER COMMENT).
