Minority Women More Likely Victims of Domestic Violence

Sing Tao Daily, News Report, Posted: Sep 10, 2008

NEW YORK New York City Department of Health published a report Monday, which shows that from 2003 to 2005, almost half of all female homicide victims (44 percent) were killed by a husband or boyfriend. And, The Sing Tao Daily reports, those women are more likely to be from ethnic communities than Caucasian. African American women are the most vulnerable, followed by Latino, Asian and then Caucasian women. In the City of New York, in 2005, 10 percent of high school girls were attacked by their boyfriend. This rate is 7.1 percent higher than that of 1999.
