Shedding light on violence against women


The Ray Rice debacle has pushed the issue of violence against women back into the spotlight this month.

The 27-year-old Baltimore Ravens runner back was originally suspended from playing for two games.

Later, TMZ released elevator footage of Rice attacking his wife.

The NFL then stepped in suspending the player indefinitely after seeing the video.

While high profile cases like this grab headlines, millions of other women suffer in silence at the hands of abusive partners.

The Sun Online hopes there facts and figures will shed light on this ever-present problem.
