1 in 4 women experience intimate partner violence - more than ovarian, lung and ovarian cancer combined.
According to The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime; three women are killed by their partners every day, nationwide; and 74% of Americans know a victim of domestic violence. Even after survivors have escaped, research indicates that many survivors suffer from chronic health problems and long-term psychological problems.
The Purple Boots Foundation (PBF) celebrates the resilience of survivors; raises awareness to aid in the prevention of domestic violence and improves aftercare resources for survivors.
If you are concerned about your safety or are worried about a friend or family member, the National Domestic Violence hotline offers a confidential 24-hour hotline you can call anytime to receive information, emotional support, and emergency help: 1-800-334-2836.
