  1. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. 
  2. Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. 
  3. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup. 
  4. Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. 
  5. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.  Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
