According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence

• One in every four wom­en will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. One in 33 men experienced an at­tempted or completed rape.

• An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physi­cal assault by an intimate partner each year.

• The majority (73 percent) of family violence victims are female. Females were 84 percent of spousal abuse vic­tims and 86 percent of abuse victims at the hands of a boy­friend.
