It can happen to ANYBODY.
Silence Hides Violence.
Between 50% to 60% of domestic violence victims are women.
Every 15 seconds, a woman is beaten in this country.
For approximately 4 million women, the battering requires medical or police attention.
Annually 4,000 women’s abuse ends- they die.
Abuse against men is often times underestimated, overlooked, and hidden.
In 100 domestic violence situations approximately 40 cases involve violence by women against men. An estimated 400,000 women per year are abused or treated violently in the United States by their spouse or intimate partner. This means that roughly 300,000 to 400,000 men are treated violently by their wife or girl friend.
