Not a typical conversation here ...

Posted Aug 25 2008 2:31pm

Not a typical conversation here at DatingTales, but one I think is worth talking about. Read these facts from the Family Violence Prevention Fund :

• 78% of stalking victims are women and it is likely that she is stalked by an intimate partner

• 20% of women report being raped or assaulted in their lifetime

• Each day, at least three women are murdered by their significant others in the United States

• 30% of Americans know a woman who within the last year has been abused by her significant other

• Men are more likely to be victims of violent crime, however, women are eight times more likely to be violated by a partner

This ad from the UK-based National Centre for Domestic Violence will get you thinking too.

If you or someone you know is struggling with Domestic Violence, call the National Domestic Violence Helpline (800) 799-SAFE
