On average more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the U.S.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women in the United States. The FBI reports that 32% of female homicide victims are killed by their intimate partners.

1 in 4

Nearly one in four women in the U.S. reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life.

More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Among victims of intimate partner violence, more than 1 in 3 women experienced multiple forms of rape, stalking, or physical violence; 92.1% of male victims experienced physical violence alone, and 6.3% experienced physical violence and stalking

Women

Women are much more likely than men to be victimized by a current or former intimate partner.

More than half (51.1%) of female victims of rape reported being raped by an intimate partner and 40.8% by an acquaintance; for male victims, more than half (52.4%) reported being raped by an acquaintance and 15.1% by a stranger.

1 in 3

Approximately one in three adolescent girls in the United States is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner.

One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence. Nearly 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year. Girls and young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence — almost triple the national average.

It's time to end domestic violence and sexual assault in our region.

Finding Light in the Darkness

By Kristy Trautmann These feel like dark times for many – less daylight, more cold weather, and much fear and sadness in the wake of violence and tragedy. In the coming weeks many faith traditions will celebrate light and hope, and we wish you peace and comfort throughout the holidays. But everyone who has lit a flame in the darkness knows that fire both brings light and amplifies shadows. We can in turn be mesmerized by dancing candlelight and be startled by the oversized, sometimes menacing shadows cast by its brightness.  Our collective work to prevent violence and to promote safe and healthy relationships requires …

Men & #MeToo – One Year Later

By Kristy Trautmann We are experiencing a watershed moment in the movement to address violence against women. Fifty years ago, we did not talk about domestic violence, sexual assault or sexual harassment.  And now gender-based violence is in the headlines nearly every day: Bill Cosby, campus sexual assault, Larry Nassar and the testimony of Olympic gymnasts, Harvey Weinstein, the #MeToo movement, sexual misconduct in the Catholic Church… We now recognize these forms of abuse as serious and pervasive societal issues. Three years ago, Southwest PA Says No More was founded to support the regional movement to prevent domestic violence and sexual assault. Across our region, …
