Looking at the Data… from Church Women
Over the last 15 years, we have collected data from over 500 church women concerning domestic violence.
Here are some of their beliefs concerning abuse and a snapshot of their experiences related to working with other women who have been victimized.
- 95% of church women report they have never heard a specific message on abuse preached from the pulpit of their church;
- 58% of church women have helped an abused woman—one in four have offered her a bed for the night;
- 69.8% of church women have sought the help of another woman in their church regarding a family related problem;
- Many Christian women who have been violated do not feel that the term—abused woman—applies to them.
