A new study from York University looks at dating violence among “high risk” young women and finds that a significant number of them are either victims of physical dating violence or are perpetrators of dating violence. According to Statistics Canada, half of all women in Canada have experienced some form of physical or sexual violence since the age of 16, and 80 per cent of the victims of reported intimate partner violence are women. Women in their late 20s and early 30s have the highest rates of intimate partner violence, followed by women between 15 and 24 years of age.
But for young women facing any of a host of problems, from living on the street or being involved with either the justice system or Child Protective Services to being pregnant or parenting or dealing with a mental health issue, for these at risk women the prevalence rates for dating violence are especially high.

The authors conducted a meta-analysis of 29 articles addressing dating violence among high risk young women and concluded that 34 per cent of women of this category report that they have been victims of physical dating violence and 45 per cent report perpetrating physical dating violence.
This compares with young women not considered high risk where estimates are 15 to 20 per cent for victimization and 20 to 30 percent for perpetration.
Many of the women reported staying with partners who perpetrated violence so as to avoid further violence from others or because they had children to protect, with vulnerability being a key thematic element in many cases.
The study showed that beyond the high risk factors a significant group of social relationship factors often played a self-reported role in the dating violence – factors such as exposure to marital violence, poor or low parental modeling, aggressive peers and living in violent neighborhoods.
