Michigan and Washington


About 4 out of every 10 females seen in emergency departments for injuries related to assault were there because of intimate partner violence.


In 2006, 47% of domestic violence homicides occurred AFTER the victim had left, divorced, separated, or was planning on breaking up with the abuser.

This means women are in just as much danger WHEN leaving and AFTER leaving as they are IN the relationship.
