This new report by the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) reveals that around the world "at least one in three women worldwide has been beaten, coerced into sex or abused in her lifetime." Based on over 50 population-based surveys and more than 500 studies of domestic violence, the report finds that by far the greatest risk of violence comes not from strangers, but from male family members including husbands. Users can read the full text of the report, which was published as part of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health Population Reports series, by chapter in HTML format. The report also includes selected highlights, figures, tables, a pull-out guide for health care providers, and a bibliography.
