Women all over the world will be recognized for their commitments to our society and for the inequities they face during International Women's Day 2017. While women in Wisconsin don't face some of the challenges women in developing countries face, they still encounter in their lifetimes inequities and tragedies simply because of their gender. While one in seven men will be victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime, nearly twice as many women will experience that same violence with one in four suffering severe physical violence by their partner.
