DOMESTIC & SEXUAL VIOLENCE
BY THE NUMBERS
10 million+ Americans are victims of physical violence annually.
85% of domestic violence victims are women.
On average, more than 3 women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends every day in the U.S.
50% of men who frequently assault their wives also frequently abuse their children.
Every 2 minutes in the U.S. a person is a victim of sexual violence. That's 1,440 people per day.
20 people are victims of physical violence every minute in the U.S.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men is a victim of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner during their lifetimes.
Intimate partner physical abuse is not bound by age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or nationality; it exists in all communities.
Contrary to popular belief, physical abuse is not simply a maladjusted person’s occasional expression of frustration or anger, nor is it typically an isolated incident. Physical abuse is a tool of control and oppression and is a choice made by one person in a relationship to control another.
