“A 2007 report from the American Psychological Association found that nearly every form of media studied provided “ample evidence of the sexualization of women,” and that most of that sexualization focused on young women.”

“Violence against women is going down, unless you’re not white. Between 2003 and 2004, the incidents of intimate partner violence among black females increased from 3.8 to 6.6 victimizations per 1,000 women. And the average annual rate of intimate partner violence from 1993 to 2004 was highest for American Indian and Alaskan Native women — 18.2 victimizations per 1,000 women.”
