Key Findings
Analysis of survey data on the prevalence,
incidence, and consequences of violence
against women produced the following results:
● Physical assault is widespread among adults
in the United States: 51.9 percent of surveyed
women and 66.4 percent of surveyed men
said they were physically assaulted as a child
by an adult caretaker and/or as an adult by
any type of attacker. An estimated 1.9 million
women and 3.2 million men are physically
assaulted annually in the United States.
● Many American women are raped at an
early age: Of the 17.6 percent of all women
surveyed who said they had been the victim
of a completed or attempted rape at some
time in their life, 21.6 percent were younger
than age 12 when they were first raped, and
32.4 percent were ages 12 to 17. Thus, more
than half (54 percent) of the female rape
victims identified by the survey were
younger than age 18 when they experienced
their first attempted or completed rape.
● Violence against women is primarily intimate
partner violence: 64.0 percent of the
women who reported being raped, physically assaulted,
and/or stalked since age 18 were victimized by a
current or former husband, cohabiting partner, boyfriend, or
date. In comparison, only 16.2 percent of
the men who reported being raped and/or
physically assaulted since age 18 were
victimized by such a perpetrator.

Global Signatures to End Violence Against Women and Children

World Bank Report

Gender-based violence (GBV) or violence against women and girls (VAWG), is a global pandemic that affects 1 in 3 women in their lifetime.

The numbers are staggering:

  • 35% of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence.
  • Globally, 7% of women have been sexually assaulted by someone other than a partner.
  • Globally, as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
  • 200 million women have experienced female genital mutilation/cutting.

This issue is not only devastating for survivors of violence and their families, but also entails significant social and economic costs. In some countries, violence against women is estimated to cost countries up to 3.7% of their GDP – more than double what most governments spend on education.

Failure to address this issue also entails a significant cost for the future.  Numerous studies have shown that children growing up with violence are more likely to become survivors themselves or perpetrators of violence in the future.

One characteristic of gender-based violence is that it knows no social or economic boundaries and affects women and girls of all socio-economic backgrounds: this issue needs to be addressed in both developing and developed countries.

Decreasing violence against women and girls requires a community-based, multi-pronged approach, and sustained engagement with multiple stakeholders. The most effective initiatives address underlying risk factors for violence, including social norms regarding gender roles and the acceptability of violence.
