Press Release: Presidential Proclamation-NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH 2011 from The White House, 10/3/11

Tuesday, October 04, 2011


The Presidential Proclamation states, “During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we recognize the significant achievements we have made in reducing domestic violence in America, and we recommit ourselves to the important work still before us. Despite tremendous progress, an average of three women in America die as a result of domestic violence each day. One in four women and one in thirteen men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. These statistics are even more sobering when we consider that domestic violence often goes unreported.”
