Why We Must Act

The numbers for national domestic violence statistics are sobering, nearly one in three American women report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives. Each year since 1976, about 30 percent of all female murder victims are killed by their intimate partner.

According to a new study conducted by the Violence Policy Center, Georgia ranks 15th in the nation for its rate at which men kill women in single-victim homicides, most of which are domestic violence murders.
