"A Call To Men."
Some National Domestic Violence Statistics:

• Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
• Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
• Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. Read more strategies and guidelines in our comprehensive blog linked here:
