NO ONE HAS IT HARDER THAN THEIR MOTHER DID:
In US, a decline in domestic violence (Stacy Teicher Khadaroo, AUGUST 26, 2014, CS Monitor)
Annual rates of nonfatal domestic violence fell by 63 percent between 1994 and 2012 - from 13.5 victimizations per 1,000 people to 5 per 1,000. This is a count by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) of such crimes as rape, assault, and robbery committed by intimate partners, former partners, or family members. The figures are based on a national survey and include both reported and unreported crimes against people over age 12.In a BJS count of serious intimate partner violence against women, the numbers dropped 72 percent between 1994 and 2011. And from 1993 to 2007, the annual number of female victims of homicides by intimate partners declined from 2,200 to 1,640; male victims from 1,100 to 700.
