Million of women in the United States are physically, and emotionally abuse by an intimate partner each year. Domestic violence is a situation that harms and kills most particularly women, children, and families members. As a result, battering of women is one of the foremost causes of injury to women.

This harm to and loss of life is due to the negligence of all Americans, in regards to the monitoring and managing of domestic violence in the United States.
