Glamour has launched a “Tell Somebody” campaign to combat relationship violence. To provide current data on young women and relationship violence, the magazine also commissioned an exclusive Harris Interactive representative online survey of 2,542 woman ages 18 to 35, developed with counsel from the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV), the National Network to End Domestic Violence, the National Domestic Violence Hotline, Casa Esperanza and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
29% of women surveyed said they’d been in an abusive relationship.
24% of women in abusive relationships have not told anyone they’re being harmed
62% of women who reported they had been in these relationships said that having the support of a friend, family member or coworker helped them “get through the relationship safely.”
