Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten by a man.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women — more than car accidents, muggings and illnesses combined.
10 MILLION children are exposed to domestic violence every year.
A woman is 70 TIMES more likely to be murdered in the few weeks after leaving her abusive partner than at any other time in the relationship.
Last year over 50,000 women were killed by a domestic or intimate partner, that’s 58% of the 87,000 female homicides. Most of these killings did not happen suddenly, but over a continued pattern of violence.
In the year 2019 there were 1.32 million domestic abuse related incidents REPORTED, with 750,000 criminal arrests, with the vast majority of those cases ending with a dismissal of ALL charges. THAT IS A PROBLEM.
