Stop The Violence Against Women

According to the first major review of violence against women, about a third of women worldwide have been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner.

The World Health Organization and other experts estimated nearly 40 percent of women killed worldwide were slain by an intimate partner and that being assaulted by a partner was the most common kind of violence experienced by women.

Globally, the WHO review found 30 percent of women are affected by domestic or sexual violence by a partner.

The rate of domestic violence against women was highest in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where it affected 37 percent of women.
