Strangulation: One of the Most Lethal Forms of Domestic Violence

Experts warn that men "who put pressure on a woman's neck" are announcing their capacity to kill. 43% of women murdered and 45% who had endured attempted murder in domestic violence relationships were strangled at one point within the prior year; making her seven times more likely to become a homicide victim.

If you or someone you know is in danger, please call 911. For more information, to develop a safety plan, and for additional help contact:
