K., men comprise 40 percent of those who suffer from domestic violence.The Department of Psychology at California State University, Long Beach, compiled a bibliography that examined 286 scholarly investigations, 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses demonstrating that which we are reluctant to discuss — the uncomfortable reality that women are as physically aggressive, or even more so, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.
From this information researchers found that of the 18,761 relationships, 76 percent were non-violent and 24 percent were violent.
Of the 24 percent that were violent, half had been reciprocal and half had not — reciprocal meaning there was violence inflicted by both partners.
Girls younger than 15 are five times more likely to die in childbirth than women in their 20s.
