[VOICE-OVER]
A NEW GOVERNMENT SURVEY REPORTS ONE IN FOUR WOMEN IN THE U.S. SAY THEY WERE HIT HARD, KICKED OR OTHERWISE VIOLENTLY ATTACKED BY THEIR INTIMATE PARTNERS.
THE REPORT BY THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION IN ATLANTA ALSO SAYS ONE IN FIVE WOMEN SAY THEY'VE BEEN THE VICTIMS OF RAPE OR ATTEMPTED RAPE.

(2:42) From other research we know that gender inequities in society, that being exposed to violence in your home, these are things that contribute to a greater liklihood that you're going to be a perpetrator or victim of violence.

PUBLISHING THE NUMBERS DOES HELP PEOPLE BECOME AWARE OF THE PROBLEM.
[SOT/Kim Frndak, Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence]
"More and more people are really saying, 'Oh, this is something that we need to pay attention to as well,'
ONE EXPERT CALLED THE NUMBERS ON RAPE AND ATTEMPTED RAPE EXTREMELY HIGH. BUT ADVOCATES SAY THE NEW NUMBERS ARE PLAUSIBLE.
