The Reality of Domestic Violence

image30

Physical abuse is not bound by age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or nationality; it exists in all communities.

 

Women who are sexually abused by intimate partners suffer severe and long-lasting physical and mental health problems, similar to those of other rape victims.

 The single best predictor of children becoming either perpetrators or victims of domestic violence later in life is whether or not they grow up in a home where there is domestic violence.  


 Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse their own partners and children when they become adults.

A study of intimate partner homicides found that 20% of victims were not 

the intimate partners themselves, but family members, friends, neighbors,

 persons who intervened, law enforcement responders, or bystanders.


72% of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner; 

94% of the victims of these murder suicides are female.
