The issue of false accusations is a challenging one, partly because so many individuals are so emotionally invested in the false "one-in-five" claim that they will dismiss or ignore outright any evidence to the contrary.  There is a saying:  One cannot reason someone away from a position that they didn't reason themselves into to begin with." 

Most folks will remain totally ignorant of the latest US DOJ Bureau of Justice Statistics study indicating that the chance of being raped is on the order of 6 in 1000.  See links http://thefederalist.com/2014/12/11/new-doj-data-on-sexual-assaults-college-students-are-actually-less-likely-to-be-victimized/, and also http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=353687  (Caution re: the Ace of Spades blog.  It is known as something of a "tough room," and may not be work-safe).
