According to the Partnership Against Domestic Violence, every 9 seconds, another woman in the U.S. is beaten. It’s a sobering reality for one in four women in the U.S. will experience domestic violence in their lifetime, most frequently by someone they know. Female victims most commonly first experience domestic violence between the ages of 18-24 (38.6%), followed by age 11-17 (22.4%), age 35-44 (6-8%) and age 45+ (2.55%). Almost one out of five or 16.3% of murder victims in the U.S. were killed by an intimate partner; women account for two out of three murder victims killed by an intimate partner.

hesitating to seek help because of your children,
you should know that conflict in the home is extremely
