On average more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the U.S.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States. The FBI reports that 32% of female homicide victims are killed by their intimate partners.

1 in 4

Nearly one in four women in the U.S. reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life.

More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Among victims of intimate partner violence, more than 1 in 3 women experienced multiple forms of rape, stalking, or physical violence; 92.1% of male victims experienced physical violence alone, and 6.3% experienced physical violence and stalking

Women

Women are much more likely than men to be victimized by a current or former intimate partner.

More than half (51.1%) of female victims of rape reported being raped by an intimate partner and 40.8% by an acquaintance; for male victims, more than half (52.4%) reported being raped by an acquaintance and 15.1% by a stranger.

1 in 3

Approximately one in three adolescent girls in the United States is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.

One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence. Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. Girls and young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence — almost triple the national average.

It's time to end domestic violence and sexual assault in our region.

Dating Education matters as much as Drivers Ed, doesn’t it?

By Kristy Trautmann We know that 1 in 3 teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse by a dating partner. This means the vast majority of teens know someone who is in an unhealthy, sometimes violent, relationship. Even though some young people have strong relationships with parents and mentors, they are more likely to tell a friend about unhealthy relationship patterns than to ask an adult for help. We routinely instruct teens about the rules of the road before letting them drive; but far too often young people are on their own to figure out dating and intimacy. Although most Americans believe they can …

New help is available if you’ve been sexually harassed at work or school

Women’s Law Project launches #MeTooPA helpline By: Kristy Trautmann Sexual harassment is a serious and pervasive problem, not just for Hollywood celebrities, but for young women at school, and those working low-wage jobs. Far too many students and workers feel trapped and have no place to turn. More than half of 7th-12th grade girls have experienced some form of sexual harassment, and the rates are even higher for young black girls and girls with disabilities. Much of this harassment is witnessed by teachers or other adults who fail to take it seriously. One in five women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted while in college. Fewer …
