Violence and Pregnancy: Are Pregnant Women at Greater Risk of Abuse?
Gelles, Richard J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p841-56 Aug 1988
Examined data from Second National Family Violence Survey. Found women under age 25 to be more likely than older women to be both pregnant and to be hit and abused by husbands and partners. Although pregnant women were not particularly vulnerable group, pregnancy did not insulate them from high rates of violence experienced by young women. (Author/NB)
