Again, Research Finds Intimates Often Hurt Women

Findings from the July report “National Violence Against Women Survey,” sponsored by the National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control:

Nearly 25 percent of surveyed women and 7.6 percent of surveyed men said they were raped or otherwise physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or date at some time in their life. The survey also found that 41.5 percent of the women who were physically assaulted by an intimate partner were injured during their most recent assault, compared with 19.9 percent of the men.
