Domestic Violence Research
Nationally, between 2001 and 2012, 11,766 women were killed by current or former male partners.
3 women are murdered every day by a current or former partner in the U.S.
Only 25% of physical assaults perpetrated against women are reported to the police annually.
4,774,000 women in the U.S. experience physical violence by an intimate partner every year. American Psychological Assocation
40 to 45% of women in physically abusive relationships are also raped and/or sexually assaulted during the relationship.
98% of domestic violence cases include financial abuse. The number one reason survivors stay or return to the abusive relationship is because the abuser controls their money supply, which leaves them no resources to break free.
Studies estimate that 10,000,000 children are exposed to domestic violence every year.
Worldwide, men who were exposed to domestic violence as children are 3-4 times more likely to perpetrate intimate partner violence as adults than men who did not experience domestic abuse as children. WHO
