Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between ages 15 and 44 in the United States, more than car accidents, mugging, and rape combined. It is estimated that a woman is beaten every 15 seconds in the US.
One in five women victimized by their spouses or ex-spouses report they had been victimized repeatedly by the same person. Domestic violence does not occur only in poor, urban areas. Women of all cultures, races, occupations, income levels, and ages are battered.
