You are not alone

Over 1 in 3 BRITISH WOMEN have experienced DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and almost TWO FIFTHS of VICTIMS tell no one, according to an YouGov poll of 2,244 women conducted exclusively for Loose Women.

The research launches our domestic violence campaign - helped by the charity Refuge - to highlight the shocking national emergency of domestic violence and offer support and advice.

Nearly 2 in 5 (39%) of women surveyed said they hadn’t told anyone about the abuse and 35% of all women said that if they experienced domestic violence, they would not want anybody to know they were a victim.

1 in 3 women in UK suffer from domestic abuse

Over 1 in 3 BRITISH WOMEN have experienced DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and almost TWO FIFTHS of VICTIMS tell no one, according to an YouGov poll of 2,244 women conducted exclusively for Loose Women.

I would urge anyone experiencing domestic violence to remember that you are not alone. Thousands of women experience domestic violence every single day in this country. Refuge can help you to stay safe. Visit Refuge for support.

– Sandra Horley CBE, Chief Executive of Refuge

The research will launch our domestic violence campaign - helped by the charity Refuge - to highlight the shocking national emergency of domestic violence and offer support and advice.

Nearly 2 in 5 (39%) of these women said they hadn’t told anyone about it and 35% of all women said that if they experienced domestic violence, they would not want anybody to know they were a victim.

The survey showed that, out of the women surveyed who had not told anyone about their experience of domestic violence, nearly half (43%) didn’t think it was serious enough to get others involved; 33% thought it was a private matter between themselves and their partner; 14% thought their partner’s behaviour was a normal part of being in a relationship and 11% were worried they would not be taken seriously.

Many of our viewers will be sitting watching our show while living in fear of their abuser coming home in what's descended into a routine, living nightmare. If by helping just one victim to find the courage to make plans and get out, then we will have done our job.

– Matrin Frizzle, Editor Loose Women
