Battered Mothers, Children Who Watch

With public funding cutbacks  for social service I was very alarmed to hear a statistic mentioned on the radio about how 3 out of 4 battered women who leave their abusers end up either severely injured or murdered.  The radio show was on NPR today, sorry I can’t remember the show.  But there was discussion about how most of the abused women also have children who suffer from the same problems.

I found this list of statistics which confirms that unbelievable rate.  The date looks a bit old.  The show was about how the funding for battered womens’ shelters is ending.  One community in California try to find private homes in the area which would act as safe houses.  And, how these can be very dangerous as there is no security to protect against intruders.
