“Love Shouldn’t Hurt”

Domestic Violence:

A pattern of repetitive acts of dominance and coercion ( i.e. threats and intimidation, social isolation, controlling behavior, economic and sleep deprivation, imprisonment; and physical, sexual, emotional, economic, verbal, and psychological abuse) to demonstrate power and control over the other person.

  • 1 in every 3 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
  • An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
  • 85% of domestic violence victims are women.
  • Historically, females have been most often victimized by someone they knew.
  • Females who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence.
  • Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds $5.8 billion each year, $4.1 billion of which is for direct medical and mental health services.17
  • Victims of intimate partner violence lost almost 8 million days of paid work because of the violence perpetrated against them by current or former husbands, boyfriends and dates. This loss is the equivalent of more than 32,000 full-time jobs and almost 5.6 million days of household productivity as a result of violence.17
  • There are 16,800 homicides and $2.2 million (medically treated) injuries due to intimate partner violence annually, which costs $37 billion.18
