Statistics of Violence Against Women

text size A A A

Violence against women is a problem throughout the world, according to the United Nations Regional Information Centre which produced this infographic. Sexual violence even exists in countries you might assume to be relatively safe.

This infographic reports that "22.3% of women experience sexual violence by non-partners in their lifetime in Switzerland."

The Biblical Counseling Coalition, reports that in the United States "women 16 to 19 years old have the highest rate of sexual victimization of any age group."

What can Christians do about this abuse? Christians should form an environment where people are safe from predators, victims can seek healing, and justice is sought.
