Hmm, scribbled notes from some work-related course I did on 25th April 2006.
It’s mostly men hitting women (but obviously not entirely!)
Women doing it respond to anger management course
Men doing it for control and therefore (often) don’t respond to anger management
Often first physical incident is during pregnancy
A quarter of women experience violence from a man they know
Every week two women are killed by a present or former partner
On average a woman suffers 35 assaults before reporting to police
“Get them pregnant” (once older kids at school the woman starts talking about going back to work etc.)
In 90% of cases child(ren) are in the same or next room.
