Violence Against Women: A Week in the Life of America [pdf]

A report that graphically portrays the human tragedy of a single “Week in the Life of America’s Women.” We have found that in 1991, at least 21,000 domestic crimes against women were reported to the police every week, almost one-fifth of all aggravated assaults reported to the police are aggravated assaults in the home, and these figures reveal a total of at least 1.1 million assaults, aggravated assaults, murders, and rapes against women committed in the home and reported to the police (unreported crimes may be more than three times this total).
