Every nine seconds, a woman is assaulted or battered in the U.S, making domestic violence the leading cause of injury to women- more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. However, according to reports from 10 countries, 55-95 percent of women who have been physically abused by their partners had never contacted police for help.
Domestic violence is no minor matter and those who practice it are breaking the law. It is important to reduce domestic violence because men who as children witnessed their parents’ domestic violence were twice as likely to abuse their own wives than sons of nonviolent parents. Those who grow up witnessing violence will most likely become violent. Victims shouldn’t be afraid to report any kind of domestic violence because the law will provide safety and punish abusers.
