THEREFORE 804,048 women & 453,689 men in Arizona will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. •Every 9 seconds a woman in the U.S. is beaten or assaulted by a current or ex-significant other. •1/15 (6.6%) of US children were exposed to physical IPV, (Inter Partner Violence) which is more than 5 million children.
