How many rapes happen in Greece? Who are these rapists?

 According to the General Secretariat for Gender Equality, around 5,000 rapes occur in Greece every year[1]. However, the rape rate for Greece was 1.1 cases per 100,000 population in 2015 and has fallen gradually from 1.6 cases per 100,000 population in 2006[2]. It is important to note that most rapes in Greece go unreported[1]. 

It is not possible to determine who the rapists are in Greece from the search results. However, rape is a global problem and is not limited to any particular group or demographic. The challenge of tracking down truthful rape statistics is that many cases go unreported, and the data is often incomplete or unreliable[3]. 

Rape is a common topic in history and mythology, and Greek mythology depicts women as vulnerable to assault, able to escape only through death or metamorphosis[4]. However, it is important to note that rape in Greek mythology is a fictional representation and should not be used to draw conclusions about real-world rape statistics or the experiences of rape survivors[4][5].

It is not possible to determine the prevalence of false rape accusations in Greece from the search results. However, a 2009 study of rape cases across eleven countries in Europe found the proportion of cases designated false ranged from 4% to 9% [1]. Another study conducted in Canada in 2016 found that 5.2% of cases were confirmed false rape reports[1]. However, it is important to note that false rape accusations are relatively rare, and most rape cases go unreported[2]. 

It is also important to note that over-estimation of the prevalence of false accusations of sexual assault is prevalent among boys and men, with substantial consequences for their ability to understand and prevent sexual assault[3]. False rape allegations can have serious consequences for the accused, and it is important to approach all allegations with sensitivity and care while also ensuring that justice is served for all parties involved.

However, this does not necessarily reflect the actual prevalence of rape in Greece, as many cases may go unreported due to various factors, such as stigma, fear, lack of trust in the justice system or cultural norms². Therefore, a comparison between countries based on reported rates should be done with caution. As for the perpetrators of rape in Greece, there is not much information available on their characteristics or motives. However, some studies have suggested that most rapists are known to the victims, such as relatives, friends, acquaintances or partners³ . Some of the factors that may contribute to rape in Greece are patriarchal attitudes, gender inequality, alcohol consumption, lack of sex education and awareness, and inadequate legal protection and support for victims³ .
