Women’s safety

Women and girls are often the targets of violence, including domestic violence, sexual assault, forced marriage and trafficking. If you are a victim, you don’t have to put up with it.

Violence against women: the numbers

In the last year, more than one million women and girls experienced domestic abuse in England and Wales.

Each year, more than 300,000 women are sexually assaulted and 60,000 women are raped.

Studies done by the British Crime Survey and similar surveys also show that:

  • more than one in four women have experienced domestic violence
  • 39 per cent of women say that the fear of crime impacts on their quality of life
  • nearly one in ten women say they have been stalked
  • 40 per cent of victims of serious sexual assault tell nobody

Domestic violence

Domestic violence can include physical abuse, sexual assault and verbal threats.

It can also include more subtle attacks such as:

  • constant breaking of trust
  • isolation
  • psychological games
  • harassment

It can affect partners in all types of relationships and can also involve violence between parents and children.
