More than 750,000 people are listed on the FBI’s National Sex Offender Registry, which is a rough accumulation of registries that are managed by each state. Women make up about 7 percent of that number. While it is difficult to gauge the experience of all female registrants, the half dozen I interviewed for this story detailed how they have become the objects of sexual assault and harassment because of their sex offender status. Furthermore, because of the stigma of their convictions, the women often feel powerless to stop or report incidences.
