Australian women are 7 times more likely than men to be murdered by a partner or husband (Australian Institute of Criminology).

80% of sexual assaults in Australia are against women and 1 in five of these is perpetrated by a family member (i.e. either a father, male partner or husband - AIC).

The median duration of a marriage ending in divorce in WA is 11 years and has been that way since 1960. The most common age at which West Australian marriages are terminated is when the couple are in their mid-to late 30’s (WA office of youth affairs).

The most recent census shows that marriage rates in Australia are at their lowest since 1978 (ABS).

From the Sunday Times ......

1 in 12 women who were married or in de facto relationships had experienced some violence from their current partner.

1 in 3 young people aged between 12 and 20 had witnessed domestic violence in the home.

1/4 of all teenagers had seen physical violence perpetrated against the female parent.
