Domestic Violence Agencies
According to the Refuge, a nonprofit that works for the issue of domestic violence, in a weeks period two women are killed by their significant other or a former partner. The UN states that 17% to 38%of women have been physical assaulted by their partner. Sadly, women are abused, on average, 35 times before they reach out for help.
