New Hampshire

New Hampshire recently released a study on violence within the male population of it's state regarding domestic violence, sexual assault, and physical violence. The DEMi staff was completely shocked to learn that in the state of New Hampshire, nearly 3 out of every 4 men experience sexual or physical violence at some point in their lifetime.

One in 20 men reported sexual assault and 68% reported that assault occurred BEFORE their 18th birthday.

One in 4 men reported being physically abused by an intimate partner.

These statistics are astounding. Other studies have shown that number to range between one in six and one in twenty.

DEMi stands proudly with the state of New Hampshire to fight domestic violence against men and women.
