Campus Intimate Partner Violence Facts

The state of New York published a comprehensive PDF on Intimate Partner Violence which stated that: • "Nearly 80% of females reported at least one incident of physical or sexual aggression by the end of college. • 42% of stalking incidences reported by college women were perpetrated by a current or former intimate partner. • In the US, approximately 1 in 3 young women (estimates up to 35%) are victims of interpersonal violence. • College students face unique obstacles when it comes to IPV, sexual assault, and stalking. • Living on campus or away from home can make students feel trapped in their community and social peer group. • College students might be more fearful of reporting if they were using drugs or alcohol. • Avoiding harassment and stalking can be more difficult when a victim lives in the same residence hall or attend the same classes as their abuser. • Campus policies and procedures about dating abuse can be unclear. • Campus security and resident life staff may be unprepared to deal with dating abuse." This document goes a long way to explaining some of the disturbing statistics about campus sexual assaults. One of the best ways that women can defend themselves against sexual assault is with a self-defense item that is nonlethal. They are legal just about everywhere and are an inexpensive, effective way to defend yourself against any type of assault. We always recommend a product that can be carried on a keychain that way it is with you at all times.
