DID YOU KNOW:
Domestic Violence is the leading cause of injury to women, more common than auto accidents,
muggings, and cancer combined.
One in every three or four women you know will experience or has experienced constant
abuse in her life.
Children who witness domestic abuse often go to prison trying to defend their mothers.
Everyday in this country, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
(U.S. Department of Justice)
One in ten teenagers will experience some form of physical abuse in their dating relationships.
