The rate of women and girls 12 or older who are being sexually assaulted has decreased 64% over the past decade, the Justice Department reported Thursday, CBS News reports.

In 2010, for example, 270,000 rapes or sexual assaults were investigated, compared to 560,000 in 1995 CBS News wrote.

The biggest drops occurred between 1995 and 2005. Since then, the figures have remained relatively stable.

“We have a ways to go,” Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority, told ABC News. “It is clear there is still too much violence and too many are fearful to report it.”
