Ending Violence is Everyone's Responsibility

51% of Canadian women have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16.

36% of female victims of spousal violence and less than 10% of all victims of sexual assault reported these crimes to the police in 2004.

Violence against women occurs across all ethnic, racial, religious, age, social and economic groups.

Some women are more likely to experience violence, including women with disabilities, geographically isolated women, young women and Aboriginal women.
