In the United States, as well as the world at large, the issue of violence against women remains a pressing problem. With thirty years experience in preventing and overcoming violence, Americans carefully calculate the extent of the problems and risks associated with it. Thus, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 25% of women in the US are exposed to domestic violence in their lifetime. It is also proved that women aged 20-24 are most likely to be abused by an intimate partner. And every sixth woman during her lifetime was the victim of rape or attempted rape.
