Violence Against Women
Violence against women persists at epidemic levels. Almost one in five women in the U.S. will experience an attempted or actual rape in their lifetimes. In New York City, police respond to almost 250,000 domestic violence calls per year—that’s over 680 calls every day. Women and girls are routinely trafficked and sold online and in brothels throughout New York. NOW-NYC has been instrumental in trying to change this. We’re strengthening our laws and creating new ones, holding our justice system accountable, ensuring victims’ services are comprehensive, and breaking down long-standing public attitudes and cultural beliefs that make it difficult for rape victims to come forward and for rapists, batterers, and traffickers to be prosecuted.
