“Intimate-partner violence accounts for between 40 and 50 percent of all female homicides and 15 percent of all violent crime.”
“Between 65-80% of intimate partner homicides have a reported history of intimate partner violence against the female partner.”
What we have been doing around intimate-partner violence simply hasn’t worked. We still place the burden on victims.
