Unite Against Violence Against Women. Cheyenne Pettiford
Violence is NOT to be taken lightly.
Around the world at least 1 woman in every 3 has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Most often the abuser is a member of her own family.
Every 9 seconds, a woman in the United States is assaulted or beaten.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. 92% of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assault as their top concern.
